One of the Nicest Ever

E.A. Kral.  “Robert Taylor:  A Golden Era Hollywood Movie King from Nebraska,” Copyright 1993 by E.A. Kral. Original 48-page supplement published with October 8, 1993 Beatrice Daily Sun.

A sophisticated Robert Taylor isn’t in Nebraska any more.

So what may one say in conclusion about Robert Taylor, a golden-era Hollywood movie king from Nebraska?  He was one of the great Hollywood stars, one of the handsomest men in America, and a model of decency.  Moreover, he was married to Barbara Stanwyck, one of the very successful actresses during her era, and he and Ursula Thiess, his second wife, were of the most attractive, glamorous couples anywhere.  He  was also one of the nicest persons who ever lived.

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.
