STOP blaming Glenn ford
18 December 2016 | by rickdumesnil-55203See all my reviews

will people stop saying Glenn ford was stiff and not good in loves of Carmen. he was excellent maybe people kept seeing him in detective clothes or cowboy outfits. he rendered his role with awesome facility and when he wasn't saying dialogue you could feel the tension just by the expression in his eyes. Rita Hayworth is for me the most beautiful of all Hollywood actresses and the role of Carmen fitted her like a glove. a good movie...a little fake scenery that we could spot but fell greatly to my expectations, but please don't be so hard on Glenn ford...he did a good job and his teaming with miss Hayworth will never tarnish.
