Morning Man Classic: Randolph Scott!



A few weeks before my dad died last November at the age of 92, my nephew and me took him to lunch and after settled in to his living room to watch a western on TV called The Tall T. The movie happened to star today’s Morning Man, Randolph Scott. It was the last movie I ever watched with my dad and we had watched hundreds and hundreds together over the years.

Scott was born on this day in 1898, retired from movies at the age of 64, and lived to be 89 years old.

He made more than 100 movies in a career that reached its peak in the 1950s. 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. These days, they would be the biggest thing going on Instagram don’t you think?

2 Remarks

  1. I hope you are doing well since your father’s death in November. The pain, missing him never goes away. I just hope as the days go on that you smile every time you think of him. Remembering the good times you had together.

    Randolph Scott what a stunning man. Yes, he and Cary were probably lovers. I just love the old pictures and the way men dressed. Many men today dress shabbily and should never leave the house. Just imagine living in those times being gay. Where your sexual orientation could lose one’s livelihood, be committed, and be shunned by your family and friends… What a time.

    I see you follow Gr8erDays. A posting was done on Randolph. Your read that he did some shrewd investing as was probably worth around 100 million when he died. That is a lot of money in the 1960s. Today it is worth $1,002, 692,567.57

  2. PS-Can’t edit my comment. You included the GR8erDays posting in your column.
