Glenn Ford is best known for his film roles as cowboys and as an ordinary man in unusual circumstances. His acting career began on stage, and his first large movie part was in 1939 film Heaven with a Barbed Wire Fence.
He died in his Beverly Hills home on August 30, 2006 at the age of 90. According to Army Archerd, Mr. Ford decided to be buried in the Woodlawn mausoleum back in 1984, twenty two years before his death (at age 90). He even picked out his casket at the same time (along with his son, Peter Ford, from Glenn's marriage with actress Eleanor Powell.)
Glenn Ford's crypt is located on the lower level of the masoleum. When you enter the front doors of the mausoleum, walk straight back down the main hallway, and on your right you will see an elevator, as well as stairs. Go downstairs. When you come out of the elevator (or the stairs), there will be a side corridor right in front of you, running north/south (not the main east/west hallway). Glenn Ford is interred on the right (east) side of this corridor, in the second column of crypts (in from the main hallway), and two spaces up from the floor, at eye level.
