Merry Christmas from Robert Taylor


About giraffe44

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.

  5. Thank you for your your Robert Taylor website… Love it so much. I am the same age right now as when Mr Taylor passed away. I watched his movies religiously dating back to the early 70’s. Back before the internet & email. I wrote to TCM and asked to air 4 of Robert Taylor Movies…. They wrote me back and gave me the days & times of when they would air them. Thank you again for your website. Keep it up! I go to it for my own reference if I want some more info on Mr Taylor or his movies.
