Glenn Ford was one of the few actors that served in the military during WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

"During his service with the Marines in World War II, he helped build safe houses in France for those hiding from the Nazis. Mr. Ford also served two tours of duty in Vietnam and is the only actor to have served with both the Green Berets and the French Foreign Legion. Among his numerous medals and commendations are the Medal of Honor, presented by the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the French Legion of Honor Medal for his service in World War II, two commendation medals from the US Navy and the Vietnamese Legion of Merit."

In Superman... Glenn Ford plays *Jonathan Kent* Superman's father on earth.
Marlon Brando play's the real father of Superman on planet Krypton *Jor-El*.

*The boy is found and adopted by a late-middle-aged childless couple, Jonathan and Martha Kent[played by Phyllis Thaxter], who name him Clark.*
