New Robert Taylor Documentary

There is a new Robert Taylor documentary made for British TV and just released.  It is one of the most positive views of Mr. Taylor that I have ever seen.  It is on You Tube.  There are a few mistakes but not many.  Go to You Tube and search for Discovering Robert Taylor Documentary.  It lasts about 45 minutes and is in color.  I highly recommend this and many thanks to Jen for the tip.

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.

    My favorite thing to say about RT – he was such a “man”. He was very personable, had humor, smart and of course looks. Already watched this video twice and my husband liked it, too;)


  4. Looking forward to seeing this new video. Wish there were more movies to see him in as I have watched them all more than once. xxxo

    Hi, Linda. I know you’ll enjoy it. Judith


  6. Fantastic Judith. This is episode 6 in series 8 of the TV Stars of the Silver Screen, or simply Silver Screen Stars. If you recall I sent you this information ages ago but the series was not available on your cable network over there. I was so disappointed you were not able to watch it as it was so pro Robert Taylor and not like the episode about Barbara Stanwyck, which was very indifferent about Robert Taylor. The film critics are English so no surprise to see it land on YouTube from an English source. Just rapt that you have seen it and also is enjoyed by all our other friends.
    I searched in vain for a link to send you but would never have thought to look on You Tube.
    Great, and thanks to Jen.

    Hi, June. I’d forgotten that you told me about this because I couldn’t find it anywhere. I’ll look and see if the Stanwyck episode is on YouTube. It was so nice to hear all the positive comments about Mr. Taylor. I especially liked their saying that he was proud of his role in “Devil’s Doorway.” He did a great job in that despite the blue eyes. After all, there could have been a white person in his ancestry and the blue eye gene got passed on! I’ve saved it to look at again. How’s life down under? It’s hotter than Hades here. Try wearing a mask when it’s 98 out. Very unpleasant. I’ve been thinking about one of those face shield things. I do so hope this blankety blank virus will go away. All the best, Judith
