Robert Dowdell Writing About Jack and Stoney

Posted by H5O 1.0 FOREVER on December 14, 2017 at 9:00 AM

I chanced upon an article about Jack and Stoney Burke that was written by Robert Dowdell, who portrayed Stoney's sidekick Cody Bristol. In the article, entitled "The Stoney Burke I Knew," Bob Dowdell spoke very highly of Jack and explained many of the issues for which the naysayers faulted Jack through the years.

Yes, Jack kept himself to himself, but he used that time to study his lines. After filming ended for the day, he studied his lines on the way home, and he went home to Marie, rather than out to drink with the bachelor members of the cast. Nothing bad about that!

Mr. Dowdell's ability to put his own professional ego aside long enough to tell the truth speaks exceedingly well for him. Such a shame it was that another cast member, who shall remain nameless, wasn't able to do the same thing.

No digging up involved, Steve's Girl. These things simply find their way to me. I can't explain it.

That is why I don't partake in any social media. I tell people that one of my goals in life is to remain anonymous, LOL! I feel sorry for people I see who always have their noses stuck in their cell phones. There is so much more to life.

I agree with you, Honu. It is good to read something positive about Jack. And , like you, I can very well understand him too. To go home after you have done your day's work and shut your door to the world is something I always enjoyed.

I have always been a very private person myself, now more so since I am retired. Only thinking of all the publicity jazz Jack had to go through even decades ago makes my skin crawl. And one doesn't have to think of film stars or the like: the social medias of today don't stop at the doors of "normal" people. Of course one shouldn't forget that there enough people who are "greedy" for "Likes" and would do everything and anything to be "Liked". Social medias are not my cup of tea at all.

And last but not least - I have said already but can't say it often enough: It's amazing what you are able to dig up ,H50, thank you for that.

What a nice article! Jack was indeed a lucky man to have Marie. I can really relate to Jack being a private person because I am, too. I want nothing more at the end of the day to go home to my husband and dog and shut out the rest of the world. It's nice to read a positive article about Jack - thanks for sharing this!
