Morning Man Classic: Randolph Scott!
Scott was born on this day in 1898, retired from movies at the age of 64, and lived to be 89 years old.
His films were of various genres but he found his greatest success in westerns.
He starred in such films as Belle Starr, The Spoilers, Seven Men From Now, and Ride the High Country.
The handsome Mr. Scott was married twice including a 40-plus year marriage to Patricia Stillman.
But it was his close relationship with Cary Grant that got the most attention during the early years of their careers.
It is widely believed that the two were lovers but neither ever acknowledged this, obviously. But what is known is that they lived together off and on for about 10 years as ‘roommates’ and the many publicity photos of them together are stunning.
While Grant is known for being dashing and handsome, you can see that Scott was also quite stunning.
