Calling All Robert Taylor Fans

This post also appears under the header picture on the home page of this blog. It will stay there so you can see it any time. Thanks for your help. Judith

RT4640I am asking my fellow Robert Taylor fans to contact Turner Classic Movies to ask them to include Robert Taylor on next year’s “Summer Under the Stars,” preferably on his birthday, August 5.*  TCM appears to like snail mail letters although they also accept phone calls.



You can write to:

Robert Osborne or Ben Mankiewicz
1050 Techwood Drive NW
Atlanta, GA 30318

Charles Tabesh
Sr. Vice President of Programming
1050 Techwood Drive NW
Atlanta, GA 30318

or You can leave TCM a message via phone at 404-885-5535, but please note that due to heavy volume of calls and letters, they are unable to answer all questions.

Use your own words but I would thank them for the two times in 2001 and 2010 that Mr. Taylor was Star of the Month.  Just let them you know you appreciate the many Taylor films that they show.  Then make your request pleasantly.  You know how to do this.

After all, we don’t want to see the end of Robert Taylor.????

*This year TCM honored Barbara Stanwyck on Robert Taylor’s birthday.

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.
