How I've missed Robert Walker, Jr.! "Ensign Pulver" and "The War Wagon" have always been must-see favorites of mine, and I NEVER miss watching them on TCM. I read a review recently that his role in "Ensign Pulver" was, naturally, compared to Jack Lemmon's in "Mr. Roberts," and that comparison may have short-circuted his choice of roles. But it made me think, RW could have stepped into any of Jack Lemmon's roles, including "Days of Wine and Roses," and performed magnificently! He could have been Lemmon's successor, and I wish he had! He had such a flair for both comedy and drama that it's our loss he hasn't been seen lately in either feature films or TV roles. I would love to see him again.
The Image of his Father
This young man is a mirror image of his father, also named Robert Walker (he appeared in "Since You Went Away", among many other films; though this is the film I am most fond of, along with "One Touch of Venus".) I've only seen Robert Walker Jr., on television; notably on "Murder She Wrote" as a man who was convicted of murdering his sister's fiance and being released; only to be accused of a second murder of his sister's new fiance. His performance is really riveting; he thinks he's committed the murders, but the inevitable happens and Jessica Fletcher saves the day! I really like this actor!
