Question: Whatever happened to actors Harold Gould and Glenn Ford?


Answer: Veteran character actor Harold Gould, who had a Ph.D. in theater and taught drama at Cornell University before making it his personal mission to disprove the motto "Those who can't do, teach," has been acting for nearly 45 years in movies and on TV; his most recent feature-film credit is the remake of Freaky Friday (2003). Gould also originated the roles of Mr. Cunningham and Mr. Marie in the pilots of the popular TV series Happy Days and That Girl, but was replaced by Tom Bosley and Lew Parker, respectively, when the shows went to series. Glenn Ford, a versatile leading man of the '40s and '50s, retired from acting in the early '90s after a six-decade career that included work in theater and feature films. Ford was married four times, and his son, Peter Ford (by his first marriage, to actress/dancer Eleanor Powell), acted and sang before going into real-estate contracting and development. Glenn Ford lives with his son and his family in Beverly Hills.
