As a child, there were movies I would go to simply based upon my favorite actors. Glenn Ford was one of them. I recently saw listed on cable Fastest Gun Alive and Blackboard Jungle. Also, Cowboy, which had two of my all time favorites, Glenn Ford and Jack Lemon. I think I liked them because they often played an ordinary good guy in movies with happy endings. Some things have changed, but I'm still a sucker for happy endings.
