Everything is Glenn Ford and Nothing Hurts

If you follow me on Tumblr, then you know that I really love Glenn Ford (man’s man). It seems like the gods of DVD and Blu-ray also love Glenn Ford. TCM just announced a new set of Glenn Ford crime films to be released in March.


I have actually only seen one of these films, so I am SO EXCITED for this set.


Following that up, Criterion is releasing two Glenn Ford/Delmer Daves collaborations in May. I love 3:10 To Yuma to death and Jubal is one I have been DYING to see.

Ben Wade: Hey, you know you look kind of skinny.
Emmy: I feel skinny.
Ben Wade: That’s all right. I don’t mind a skinny girl – just so she has blue eyes to make up for it. You got blue eyes?
Emmy: Brown.
Ben Wade: That’s all right. They don’t have to be blue.

Tom Reese: And all that hogwash about horses! The loyalty of the horse! The intelligence of the horse! The intelligence? You know a horse has a brain just about the size of a walnut. They’re mean, they’re treacherous and they’re stupid. There isn’t a horse born that had enough sense to move away from a hot fire. No sensible man loves a horse. He tolerates the filthy animal only because riding is better than walking.

Dr. Walter Coley: Ever see any botched plastic jobs? If a man like me didn’t like a fellow. . .he could surely fix him up for life. Make him look like a bulldog, or a monkey. I’ll make you look older, but good. I’ll make you look as if you’ve lived.
Vincent Parry: I have, doc.

Alan Squier: The trouble with me, Gabrielle, is I, I belong to a vanishing race. I’m one of the intellectuals.
Gabrielle Maple: That, that means you’ve got brains!
Alan Squier: Hmmm. Yes. Brains without purpose. Noise without sound, shape without substance.

Terry McKay: Mine too.
