I have known Peter Ford, son of Glenn Ford and Eleanor Powell, for over ten years now as I have designed and now manage his web site “GlennFordBio.com,” which was created to accompany the biography he wrote about his father “Glenn Ford: A Life” that was published in 2011. I also update his personal site and he has sanctioned my efforts here in the section devoted to his mother.
Peter Ford and his wife Lynda recently sold his father’s home in Beverly Hills, that they had lived in when Peter took care of his dad at the end of his life. The couple now travels between Burbank, CA and Montana where they are very happy living in retirement. Recently, Peter spoke with me on the phone and was kind enough to share some memories about his mother, the queen of tap dancing, Eleanor Powell.
I'd like to thank Peter for the time he took to speak with me and for sharing some of the family photos included in this interview.
