  • Just a fabulous, fine actor

    There's an integrity in his work and an honest, sincere quality that other actors have trouble duplicating. I don't think there's a bad performance from him, and some of his films are average at best. He elevates the material and gives us this raw goodness. Every time I watch one of his films, I can't help but pray for the repose of his soul. When Jennifer Jones died in late December, I wondered if her son, Robert Walker Jr. helped her remember what a wonderful man his father was and that the truly good things that survived in her life were from Robert Walker, not from David Selznick and not from Norton Simon. The Robert Walker-Jennifer Jones story is perhaps the greatest tragedy to happen behind the scenes in Hollywood. If I had the power to go back in time and correct any mistake, it would be the separation of Walker and Jones. Because of Selznick's interference in their marriage, we gained a harlot on screen and lost a good actor.

  • Robert Walker, the BEST!

    His work is truly too beautiful to describe (i.e The Clock). There is an intimacy in his performances that were soley his own, everyone else so much more superficial by comparison. For me he's the finest actor and without a doubt, the handsomest man ever on the screen. It's an added thrill to be introduced to his diverse talents with music, song, and dance. I'll be discovering his films slowly over time thanks in part to TCM and am grateful everytime I see him. Thank you Mr. Walker!

  • He was a great actor, and sorely missed.

    Those Hollyweird marriages are terrible. It is too bad Ms. Jones was "stepping up" by leaving Walker, when they came to town,he was the working one - he didn't leave her. He seemed so sweet, but strong in the War roles, and romantic in other roles. I know, as I worked in Hollywood for over 25 years - some at MGM/UA, and saw first hand how people use others to "climb" into better places, where their careers are more secure. Not only actors, but even behing the scenes workers do this - and Brekdowns are commomplace. Too bad, and in "Since You Went Away", he still was professional. RIP, Mr. Walker.

    Robert Walker was a actor who had tremendous potential as evidenced by his movies. He had this boyish look that could easily let people identify with him while at the same time commanded a good presence while filming. His love left him for another and in the way it was done, on their 1st anniversary to the very man who directed him in Since Yoy Went Away, it crushed him,morally and spiritually. We will never know what might have been but we do know what was done, and that was fine acting from a great actor who was off screen, a sad lonely shell of himself. RIP Robert you still entertain millions and we will not forget you!

  • I love Robert Walker!

    This film is unlike any other film I've ever seen. Wonderfully poignant. I love this movie! You can almost feel what Robert Walker is feeling without him even uttering a work. Judy Garland and Robert Walker are classic together.

  • The Amazing Robert Walker!!!!

    Robert Walker portrayed an amazing soldier in "The Clock." He fit the part of a handsome and gentle soldier. He is one of the greatest actors to work with Judy Garland!!
