Randolph Scott All American Actor

Randolph Scott was a handsome all American leading man who developed into one of Hollywood’s greatest and most popular Western stars. Mr. Scott, another one of the great actors of yesteryear, was best friends with Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, and the Rev. Billy Graham. He was a conservative Republican and one of Hollywood’s biggest supporters of Ronald Reagan as governor of California. Read more about this amazing man on IMDB.

Quote

My retirement is both voluntary and involuntary. One reason, and this is voluntary, is the impact of television. All old movies are turning up on television, and frankly making pictures doesn’t interest me anymore. Another reason is that the film industry is in a declining state.

George Randolph Scott was born on January 23, 1898 and passed away on March 2, 1987. He was an American film actor whose career spanned from 1928 to 1962. That’s a total of 34 years and a whole lot of movies!

Did You Know?

Randolph Scott was hired to coach Gary Cooper in a Virginia dialect for The Virginian (1929) and played a bit part in the film.

I offer a nice, 8×10 memorial photo of Randolph Scott in honor of him as one of the great American actors of all time.
