Glen Ford

Regarding comedy, you should look for "Don't Go Near the Water" (1957). Glenn Ford is in it but the hilarious one is Mickey Shaughnessy.

For Glen Ford comedies, you should not miss "The Gazebo" 1959 with Debbie Reynolds and Carl Reiner. John McGiver is a stand-out in this movie.

This is my personal Glen Ford favorite.

TCM runs it once in a while.

Plenty of good ones to catch.

 

Comedies - "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" and "The Teahouse of The August Moon" as well as those mentioned.

 

Westerns - "Jubal", "The Fastest Gun Alive", "The Violent Men."

Glenn Ford was so good in all he did. What a versatile talent! Equally believable in comedies and westerns. Of his comedies, I've always enjoyed the two he made with Debbie Reynolds ("The

Gazebo" and "It Started with a Kiss'). I miss him.

I would really like to see "The Gazebo" again. It is my favorite Glenn Ford film and I haven't watched it ages. I think TCM should pay tribute and run a Glenn Ford marathon on his birthday May 1st.
