    Description

    Glenn Ford's Dressing Room Door Number from Columbia Studios and His Doorstop from the Gilda Soundstage. Ford made his film debut in 1939 with 20th Century-Fox's Heaven With a Barbed Wire Fence, but it was with Columbia Studios that he signed his first major deal. Ford remained with the studio for 14 years, quickly graduating from B-grade movies such as Babies for Sale and Convicted Woman to A-list productions such as Gilda and The Big Heat. This 9" x 10.5" piece of wood comes from Ford's dressing room door and bears the room number "303" (his frequent co-star Rita Hayworth was next door in 302). The item is in Very Fine condition, with some notes written on the back in black felt tip by Ford. Also included is a 9.5" wooden doorstop labeled "From Columbia Stage 5/ Gilda" in Glenn Ford's handwriting. The doorstop was used on the soundstage at Columbia where much of the movie was shot, and Ford saved it as a souvenir. In Excellent condition. From the Glenn Ford Estate. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Peter Ford.
