The actor Glenn Flord passed away on August 30, 2006 at the age of 90. Superman fans know him as Pa Kent in SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE from 1978.
We explore his life and acting career, and how, as Pa Kent, he influences young Clark and builds in him the foundation for the Superman to come.
And I share a few reminisces about what I’ve learned from my own father that have remained with me for almost fifty years now!
