This is from a 1950s movie magazine. I don’t know which one. If it’s true, it’s a look into movie making back then.
Notified that he’d star in a modern story, Irwin Shaw’s 32nd Day, (it’s about pilots flying between France and North Africa) Bob Taylor was jubilant. “I don’t have to run around in a clanking suit of armor or in buckskin and coonskin hats.” (Taylor clanks in Quentin Durward and wears buckskin in The Last Hunt.) It’s been a jubilant year for Taylor anyway, since he became a father in June, and the father of a son, at that. (Barbara Stanwyck, his ex-wife, was among the many who wrote to congratulate Bob on this joyous event.) In August, right after he would up The Last Hunt, Bob set out for Buffalo, Wyoming, with the whole family in tow. The Taylors have a ranch and a mountain cabin there and Robert figured to play with the new baby and get in some pheasant shooting, too. He, Ursula and the kids had no sooner got settled down in Wyoming, when he got an emergency call from Hollywood. They needed him to re-record one line of dialogue for Quentin Durward. Reporter Joe Hyams, discovering that the line of dialogue contained twenty words, and that the trip between Buffalo and Hollywood was 1200 miles, wrote that Bob, upon returning to his vacation lodge, had put in “more than 100 miles of flight for every word he recorded.” Terrence Taylor, incidentally, the boy born to Bob and Ursula one day before Father’s Day, was a plenty healthy specimen, weighing in at seven pounds, eight ounces, and he’s picked up a-plenty since. Ursula’s two children by an earlier marriage, Manuela and Michael, adore the baby as much as they adore their new pop, which is quite a lot. MGM promised him a long vacation and his friend Gov. Joe Foss of South Dakota is joining him for pheasant shooting.
