It was only natural that little, blue eyed, blond haired Gregory Moffett would carry on the show business tradition of his elders. Mom and dad Moffett had both worked as actors and older sister, Sharyn Moffett, was one of the busiest juvenile actors of the 1940s. Although Gregory’s career was never quite as fruitful as his sister’s, he did still manage an impressive resume with roles in the Fred Astaire/Betty Hutton musical Let’s Dance (1950), the Joel McCrea western Saddle Tramp (1950) and television shows like Fireside Theatre, Superman, and Highway Patrol. Despite racking up those high caliber credits, it is Gregory Moffett’s association with one low grade cheapo movie that stands out after all these years, "Robot Monster".
With Robot Monster’s rediscovery as one of cinema’s “worst,” the film has attained cult status, and while it is debatable as to whether it deserves its much maligned reputation, you won’t get any argument out of former child actor Gregory Moffett who celebrates the fact that he starred in one of the most widely mocked films of all time
Master Moffett retired from the screen when he reached his early teens, but has led a busy life since his child-star days, including competing as a professional bowler, serving time with Uncle Sam, and working for several years as a dealer in Las Vegas. He recently retired as the manager of a bowling center in central California.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jianetwork/support
