A QUOTE TO START THINGS OFF WITH

A QUOTE TO START THINGS OFF




They were my kinfolk, my people - many of whom I'm still friends with today, though we've scattered across the country, spilling out in different directions as fast as we could once we'd tossed our graduation caps in the air.

                                                            Robert Young
                                                            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.

  1. I found your theme intriguing. Amazing how many familiar names were alive in 1921, or should that be the other way around?

    As a family historian it’s a concept that would work well for a writing prompt too.
