After making his screen debut in 20th Century-Fox's Heaven With a Barbed Wire Fence (1939), GLENN FORD (1916-2006) showed his diversity in a wide variety of genres, playing dark characters (The Blackboard Jungle and Ransom, both released in 1955), romantic leading men (Teahouse of the August Moon, 1956; The Gazebo, 1959) and rugged western heroes (The Desperados, 1943; The Sheepman, 1958; Cimarron, 1960). In 1958, Ford was voted the number one male box-office attraction, and he was able to extend his popularity long after the studio system that "created" him had collapsed. Later in his career, he appeared on television as well as appearing in feature films, including Superman: The Movie (1978). BILLY WARD and his DOMINOES was a 1950s R&B doo-wop group who had hit singles with songs such as "Sixty-Minutes Man" (1951), "Have Mercy Baby"(1952), "Star Dust"(1957), and "Deep Purple"(1957). The group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2006. George R. Sanders, originally a disc jockey, became a prominent radio/TV interview host, first in Los Angeles and later in Portland. He collected autographs from his guests. Right edge torn and frayed. Toned and slightly soiled. Creased throughout. Ink notes throughout in unknown hand. Otherwise, fine condition.
