Ten Things that Made Robert Taylor’s Heart Beat Faster

I do wonder about number 9.  This is from Good Housekeeping magazine, May 1956.

I became a Robert Taylor fan at the age of 15 when his TV show, "The Detectives" premiered. My mother wanted to watch it because she remembered Mr. Taylor from the thirties. I took one look and that was it. I spent the rest of my high school career watching Robert Taylor movies on late night TV, buying photos of him, making scrapbooks and being a typical teenager. College, marriage and career intervened. I remember being sad when Mr. Taylor died. I mailed two huge scrapbooks to Ursula Thiess. I hope she got them. Time passed, retirement, moving to Florida. Then in 2012 my husband Fred pointed that there were two Robert Taylor movies that evening on Turner Classic Movies--"Ivanhoe" and "Quentin Durward." I watched both and it happened all over again. I started this blog both for fans and for people who didn't know about Robert Taylor. As the blog passes 200,000 views I'm delighted that so many people have come by and hope it will help preserve the legacy of this fine actor and equally good man.

    Wonderful! This is new to me and reflects a great deal of his personality. Please, keep posting all these thought-provoking articles. You post faster than I find time to read, but all reading about RT is fascinating to me and I’m grateful to your hard work and dedication, that, naturally, his memory deserves.

    I am glad you feel the way I felt for a long, long time. Robert is one actor that has been grossly underrated for a long, long time.

    He certainly has been. My hope is that this blog in a small way may alert people to what they’ve been missing.
