Just to let people know what will be happening:
May-only one film, Flight Command on May 26
June – a bonanza! On June 5th TCM is showing 9 Taylor films, running from 6 a.m. to 6:15 p.m., including the rarely shown A Wicked Woman, 1934. The films are:
Small Town Girl
Westward the Women
A Wicked Woman
A Yank at Oxford
TCM has done this other years. I think they’ve got Mr. Taylor’s dates mixed up. He died on June 8, 1969. His date of birth was August, not June, 5. Who knows? In any case, you can binge watch Robert Taylor.
There are also 4 more films in June:
Above and Beyond
July – 3 films:
Lady of the Tropics
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.

Ann, you are so very welcome. I do try to encourage people to watch Mr. Taylor’s films and encourage others to do so. Thanks for writing. Judith
