Who was Robert Livingston?

Robert Edward Randall was an American film actor known under his stage name as Bob Livingston. He appeared in 135 films between 1921 and 1975.

On December 18, 1947, he married Margaret M. Roach, daughter of famous director/producer Hal Roach. They had one son, actor/writer Addison Randall born on August 13, 1949. He was named after Livingston's younger brother, Addison Randall, who had died at the relatively young age of 39 while shooting the film The Royal Mounted Rides Again in 1945. Livingston and Margaret Roach later divorced in 1951.

Often billed as "Bob Livingston," he was the original "Stony Brooke" in the "Three Mesquiteers" Western B-movie series, a role later played by John Wayne for eight films. He also portrayed the Lone Ranger in a mysterious 1939 serial directed by William Witney and co-starring Chief Thundercloud as Tonto, most of which is currently believed to be lost.

Livingston was born in Quincy, Illinois, and died in Tarzana, California, from emphysema. He was buried in Glendale's Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery.
