Years lived before 1921:Fourteen
Years lived after 1921: Seventy-Seven
When I first encountered Robert Young he was playing The titular role of Marcus Welby on primetime and Jim Anderson on Father Knows Best in reruns. Back then there was very little I knew about him.
I did not know he had originated the Father Know's Best Role on radio in the 1940's before reprising it on T.V. I did not know he had played opposite John Gielgud and Peter Lorre in Alfred Hitchcock's Secret Agent. I did not know he was in one of my wife's favorite movies, The Enchanted Cottage. (To be fair at this point, I was a kid and did not have a wife.)
Discovering these facets of Young has been a delight. He has quite a filmography and I hope to continue to make future discoveries of his stage, film, radio and television career that spanned nearly sixty years.
