Glenn Ford "Framed" and "Convicted" on 8/7


Recommended Posts

Several noirs and/or gangster movies with Glenn Ford will be shown this Friday, Aug. 8 on TCM.

 

Among other probably worthy titles:

Cast: Glenn Ford, Janis Carter, Barry Sullivan, Edgar Buchanan Dir: Richard Wallace BW-82 mins, TV-PG

 

*Convicted* (1950) 6:15pm ET

A prison warden fights to prove one of his inmates was wrongly convicted.

Cast: Glenn Ford, Broderick Crawford, Millard Mitchell, Dorothy Malone Dir: Henry Levin BW-91 mins, TV-PG

 

*Gilda* (1946) 8pm ET

A gambler discovers an old flame in South America, but she's married to his new boss.

Cast: Rita Hayworth, Glenn Ford, George Macready, Joseph Calleia Dir: Charles Vidor BW-110 mins, TV-PG

*The Undercover Man* (1949)

 

A treasury agent tries to convict a ruthless mobster of tax evasion.

Cast: Glenn Ford, Nina Foch, James Whitmore, Barry Kelley Dir: Joseph H. Lewis BW-84 mins, TV-PG

 

A great lineup for tonight, no doubt, but I can't help wondering if Framed might have been a little bit of a let-down for Ford after he helped Columbia make so much money with Gilda. Not that it's a bad movie, of course, but I think he deserved a higher-profile vehicle by then.

 

Also worth noting is that Convicted marked Ford's first movie with Crawford. The two would go on to work together on two more movies, Fritz Lang's noir Human Desire (1954) and the western The Fastest Gun Alive (1956).
