Mitchum the calypsonian[edit]

My copy of the (augmented) CD reissue of Calypso tells me that the LP was published in 1957, and the notes to the LP tells me that the lyrics were cleaned up. What's the source for the claims for 1955 publication and for no softening for the US market? -- Hoary 16:05, 2005 Jun 2 (UTC)

Now fixed, according to the album notes, CD notes, this page, and Lee Server's biography. -- Hoary 07:58, 2005 Jun 4 (UTC)

"Scotch-Irish" changed to "Scottish-Irish" as 'Scotch' is a whisky (correct and well said - I think 'Scots-Irish' is ok too, yes?). BlueKangaroo 0540 GMT 25 June 2005.

Starred in a film for Showtime[edit]

Robert Mitchum starred in a 1985 film "Reunion at Fairborough" as Carl Hostrop, ace pilot. Co-star Deborah Kerr informs him that he is a father and grandfather.

Republican[edit]

Why put "Political Party Republican" in the sidebar when there is just one line in the article stating that he voted Republican. It's not as though Mitchum was heavily involved in politics. From watching interviews he obviously had little interest in politics, less interest in politicians and even came across as being a democrat by today's standards. At least, the article does not say if he was actively involved in campaigning. It just seems like another WikiLefty dig. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.113.125.234 (talk) 22:44, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
