9½x12 recognition plaque as Best Dressed Male Star, awarded to him by California Fashion Designers (1965). From Glenn Ford's estate!
Ephemera, unsigned. Metallic plaque on a wood base (9½x12). A to Glenn Ford as "best dressed male star", bestowed by the California Fashion Designers at their 16th annual costume ball (1965). After making his screen debut in 20th Century-Fox's Heaven With a Barbed Wire Fence (1939), Glenn Ford (1916-2006) played diverse roles, including 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 remained popular 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). Ford served in the US Marine Corps during World War II, and also served two tours with the Third Marine Amphibious Force in Vietnam. He is the only actor to have served with both the US Special Forces and the French Foreign Legion. From the estate of Glenn Ford. Fine condition.
