Robert Taylor Quotes:

Tony Sinclair: You better open your eyes because I'm not just your kid brother anymore. I'm a full partner and I ride abreast of you. And you're not sitting on me anymore.
Steve Sinclair: I never sat on you; I never tied you down! I only wanted one thing in my life and that was to see you rise up. You only got up as high as your gun belt. And that's a low height for a man.

Mark Brandon: [Said to Ann Mercedes] I've never seen it fail with self-centered people: they always have some sort of noble excuse for themselves.

Lance Poole: It's hard to explain how an Indian feels about the earth. It's the pumping of our blood... the love we got to have. My father said the earth is our mother. I was raised in the valley and now I'm part of it. Like the mountains and the hills, the deer, the pine trees and the wind. Deep in my heart I know I belong. If we lose it now, we might as well all be dead.

Robert Taylor Facts
His lifelong hobbies included hunting, fishing, flying and writing letters. The last one became a life-long activity appreciated by many.

Right-handed Taylor spent weeks perfecting his ability to draw a gun with his left hand in preparation for his role in Billy the Kid (1941).

He starred in the first pro-Indian movie of the American cinema: Devil's Doorway (1950) first Anthony Mann's western, although Broken Arrow (1950) was released one month before. Devil's Doorway was completed first but held back from release due to the nervousness of MGM's studio brass over the subject matter.
