Personal Quote:

[about his career as a movie cowboy] The years of Hollywood are only a memory, albeit a happy one--and the Bob Allen Ranger films the happiest. Tim McCoy and I got along fine, but my fondest memories are of my wonderful sidekick in the series, Wally Wales [Hal Taliaferro]. God Bless his soul.


Robert died 38 years after his wife's, Evelyn Pierce, death, in the same part of the world, Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York. See more »
