I was in Wildwood NJ back in the 70's about 10 of us rented a suite. The week before Robert Mitchum was in the same suite. We just missed him. I would have loved to have met him

Ele era um grande ator, hoje não temos nem metade de atores daquela época, não curto filmes atuais, não tem paixão, não tem aquele respeito com a mulher, sou apaixonada por ele, mesmo não tendo convivido com seu auge, mas temos um acervo filmográfico... Esteja com Deus Robert Mitchum, amo você!!!

GlaziellySep 10, 2013

Amo filmes deste ator que foi surpreendente, é uma pena que já não o temos conosco. Mas era lindo....

CraigSnyderMay 13, 2013

He was a tremendous actor, loved him in both versions of Capre Fear but enjoyed his Max Cady in 1962 the most.
