Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Nifty vintage 8x10-inch black and white double-weight publicity portrait, dating to the 1950s, boldly signed and inscribed in black felt-tip pen in the 1970s. In good condition, with the slightest hint of waviness. After making his bones in Columbia B-pictures like Blondie Plays Cupid (1940), unprepossessing "every man" Glenn Ford went on to topnotch work in Gilda (1946), The Big Heat (1953), Human Desire (1954), The Blackboard Jungle (1955), Ransom (1956), Teahouse of the August Moon (1956), The Gazebo (1959), Pocketful of Miracles (1961), and, above all else, oaters like The Desperadoes (1943), The Fastest Gun Alive (1956), 3:10 to Yuma (1957), Cowboy (1958), and Cimarron (1960).  In his later years, he had a comeback role as Clark Kent's foster father in the fantasy favorite Superman: The Movie (1978), and popped up in three forgettable horror flicks, The Visitor (1979), Day of Resurrection (1980) and Happy Birthday to Me (1980).
