MINI BIO:Dark-haired, serious-looking Canadian-born actor whose determined style coupled with a lack of warmth caused him to be cast as slightly unsympathetic heroes, notably in films opposite Rita Hayworth. A study of "method" acting in the early fifties, and a change of hairstyle, enabled Ford to really hit the jackpot and remain one of America's most popular actors, mainly in tortured roles, for almost ten years. Married (first and second of four) to actresses Eleanor Powell (1943-1959) and Kathryn Hays (1966-1968). During World War II, he served both with the U.S. Marines and the French Foreign Legion.
