LOS ANGELES - Glenn Ford will make his first public appearance in 15 years when film preservation group the American Cinematheque salutes the actor May 1 on the occasion of his 90th birthday.

The event, to take place at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, will include a screening of 1946's "Gilda," in which he starred with Rita Hayworth; a 1937 short film that marked his screen debut; and a postscreening discussion led by his son Peter Ford.
