    Robert Mitchum has a twin, albeit not biological. He lives on Tybee Island, Georgia and owns and operates a highly successful seafood restaurant called The Crab Shack. Their motto is "Where the Elite Eat in Their Bare Feet!" His name is Jack Flanagan and he truly is the spitting image of Robert Mitchum and also as down to earth as Mitchum. Jack is about 85+ and lives on the premises. Around noon, he usually is in the restaurant. Very nice cordial person with some stories of his own. The website is First Class also complete with videos, photos etc.

    Mr. Skinner, I’m so happy that I’ve subscribed to your channel about two weeks ago now and have watched many of your excellent superbly delivered videos. Robert Mitchum was an excellent actor and apparent straightforward man. It’s particularly nice that many family members had the acting bug, and all were as good as he was. I remember watching him on SNL and was howling with laughter at how funny it was and his ability to poke fun at himself. They don’t make ‘em like Robert Mitchum anymore sadly. It was ESPECIALLY nice of Chris Mitchum to acknowledge your efforts for this touching video and tribute, that’s class.

    He also played another film with Deborah Kerr, who was his favourite costar, when they were both old. It was "Reunion in Fairborough": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QX2vKgFV6pk
    They did four films together in total :
    – Heaven knows Mr Allison, 
    – The Sundowners
    – The Grass is Greener (hilarious film with Cary Grant & Jean Simmons, another of his former costar in "Angel Face")
    – Reunion at Fairborough

    A funny little story about Mitchum in the old days. He had finished shooting that days scenes, and was in a bar sipping on a cocktail. Some guy comes up to him and says screw you Mitchum. He responds by telling the guy tell you what, I’ll stand here while you hit me on the chin. The guy hits him directly on the chin, and doesn’t flinch and starts laughing and says go ahead and hit me again. Before the guy could take another swing at him, Mitchum hits him with a solid right directly on the guys chin. The gentleman stumbles through a doorway, and proceeds to fall down several flights of stairs. Mitchum then says drinks for everyone on me, and make it a double for the the guy who slipped and fell down the stairs. Bad-ass Mitchum. Hollywood today is special effects and overpaid children with temper tantrums.

    This is for Jerry Skinner. I would like to thank you for all your excellent Mini Documentaries and other endeavors. Very informative and well done. One thing you left out about Robert Mitchum was his last Movie roll in the 1995 Movie called "Dead Man" .. along with Johnny Depp. Robert's acting was top notch and I have always thought he should have gotten best supporting Oscar for his part in Dead Man. & I considered it one of his best movie rolls.

    My favorite MOVE OF Robert Mitchum was THUNDER ROAD" IN 57 I WAS 12 YEARS OLD" I know he was Born in Bridge Port Connecticut" but where did he get the Southern brogue" Robert Mitchum was a good Singer, beside being one off the greatest Male actror's to come out of Hellywood" we need more actor, that came from the Old School" and in real life, Mr Mitchum stayed MARRIED TO THE SAME WIFE FOR LIFE" I deeply respect that"

    Jerry, That story was the best I have watched. I loved to watch Robert Mitchum, it was so informative and a pleasure to watch.
    I would love to see a movie of his life, I'm sure it would be a hit!

    Does anyone know the name of the song that plays at the very beginning of this video? I’ve been looking for it for a long time. Thanks.

    Robert Mitchum nor Jimmy Stewart and there are more James Garner..would have NEVER involved with Epstein and his kind….they were of a better character…we just don't have that today in actors….they are ill bred people..You plant beans you get beans

    I always recommend watch Deniro do Cape Fear. Then watch an actor do it.

    Robert Mitchum had class. Not a lot of that these days it seems.

    Thanks Jerry for remember me that Robert Mitchum was one of my father's best actor. Yes indeed, you made me remember my own father through this outstanding biography. RIP Robert Mitchum. Michel from Canada

    A wonderful job with this biography of Robert Mitchum. Thank you very much, Mr. Skinner!

    Well done sir!

    “The Night of the Hunter” is one of my favorite films. Robert Mitchum is absolutely diabolical as the preacher. I can’t hear “Leaning on the Promises of Jesus” without thinking of him singing that song while hunting down those two poor children who have the money he wants. It rates as possibly the most terrifying performance in film.

    A successful man no matter what the wicked establishment tried to do to him, and a very loving wife who stuck with him, along with his friend Jane.

    My mother was born Sept. 23rd, 1917, and it always helps me gauge these actors lives. Robert Mitchum was her age. I liked him, he was a good actor, my favorite movies of his were usually war movies, although he had a couple of westerns that I liked.

  • Reply Margaret Bu Shey August 14, 2019 at 4:19 am

    What about "War and Remembrance"? The sequel to "Winds of War". The only one you forgot to mention. Thanks for your work…..it's great.

    Robert Mitchum was one hell of a good actor. I loved his movies, specially when he played a gringo in the Mexican revolution.

    A real man and kind hearted. Everyone got coffee. LOL

    Robert Mitchum  was definetly his own man – and what a man!  There will never be another like him (more's the pity)An antidote – He got on an elevator (somewhere).  A woman also got in the same elevator.  She was apparently "star struck", and couldn't stop staring.  After some time, he said something like :…star struck? Or, do you just like my tie?"  RIP, Robert
