Constance Ford was a terrific character actress who managed to get some choice roles in glossy melodramas in the late 50′s and early 60′s. She was born in the Bronx, New York City in 1923. She began her career on Broadway and then on to live television. Her film debut came in 1956 with “The Last Hunt” a good Western with Robert Taylor and Stewart Granger. She was terrific as Sandra Dee’s uptight mother in “A Summer Place” in 1959. A few years later she was equally good in “Rome Adventure” with Troy Donahue, Suzanne Pleshette and Angie Dickinson. Here she played a lonely Americna woman running a book shop in Rome. In just a few minutes she was able to create a character of real substance. From the late 60′s on, she worked steadily in television and had a long running stint in “Another World”. She died in 1993.
