Glenn Ford was the Star, That says it all
30 October 2003 | by ( Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

I loved everything that Glenn did in Movies and TV. But would love to know how to get a copy of Beggarman Thief. I think he was the nicest Male Star of that era, 40's 50's 60's He was a Gentleman.
