Day 19: Randolph Scott

Thanks to everyone who contributed to yesterday’s tribute to Natalie Wood. Please make sure you check out all the great posts.  For the next 24 hours we honor Randolph Scott

Here’s some Randolph Scott trivia:

  • Randolph Scott played football for Georgia Tech until he was injured (NY Times)
  • Although Scott made dramas, romantic comedies and war films, he  preferred westerns. By the end of the 1940s he began making westerns exclusively. (TCMDB)
  • Scott’s last film was Ride the High Country in 1962 as he decided to retire on a high note. (IMDb)
  • Scott and Cary Grant were good friends. In the 1930s the two shared a home nicknamed “Bachelor Hall.” They had a reputation for having “women going in and out like running water.” (Cary Grant: A Class Apart. 2004)
