  9. THE WILDERNESS FAMILY-all 3 were the greatest non-Disney movies of my childhood. I have such great memories of me & my little sister watching them and eating doritos waiting for our honeybuns to cook in the oven-long before microwaves! I wanted to BE them when I grew up! Havent seen any of the actors since then, Hows Toby and the 1st Jenny?? Id love to know!

  10. Robert Logan sat behind me in High School and he was always drawing beautiful pictures. He told me that one day he would be an actor -- and he did it, and much more.

    1. If he'd sat behind ME in High School, I'm quite sure I would have retained exactly ZERO information!

  11. He was my favorite actor and what a handsome guy he was. Enjoyed the movie The Sea Gypsies also known as Shipwreck & Across the Great Divide. Wish he had done so much more in the movie industry & if I could meet him I would make love with him the rest of my life. I'm 55 and still look like I'm in my 30's I think but if that doesn't get his attention can I please see the movie Shipwreck for free that means put it out there for us to see without having to pay for it

  12. Robert Logan did a movie back in the early eighties by the name of "Kelly" where he played the part of an Alaskan bush pilot. I've looked everywhere but can't find any reference to it. I'd sure love to find out where I could possibly get a copy of that movie. It was and still is one of my favorites. ANY help from anyone in this regards would be extremely appreciated.
