The Big Push

Probably July 1948. I have posted about this before, but this contemporary account seems worth seeing. This happened at the British Premier of The Other Love with Ms. Stanwyck and David Niven.

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.

    I was under the assumption that Barbara Stanwyck could hold her own with anyone as she always gave off the aura of toughness. That’s just from just the movies of hers I’ve seen and Big Valley series.

    Hi, Jen. She was tough. She had to be in order to survive. I can’t imagine what it would feel like, to have a crowd of excited people, even a friendly one, surrounding you yelling and screaming. I’m sure she recovered quickly. Judith
