Tall (6'3"), athletic, dark-haired, boyishly handsome Robert F. Logan, Jr. was the eldest of seven children. Born in Brooklyn on May 29, 1941, to bank executive Francis Logan and Catherine Quigley just a few months before the United States entered World War II. The family moved to Los Angeles when Bob was a child. He pursued sports in high school and was attending the University of Arizona on a baseball scholarship when discovered by a Warner Bros. talent agent and destiny intervened.Debuting in the early 1960's as a young suitor in the trashy soap-styled movie Claudelle Inglish (1961), he was placed in various Warner Bros. TV shows such as "Maverick" and "Surfside 6." He also replaced the phenomenally popular Edd Byrnes' "Kookie" character (Kookie advanced to being a full-fledged investigator) on the highly popular TV series 77 Sunset Strip (1958) as the newly hip, slang-speaking parking attendant J.R. Hale. Following this, he ventured on with guest spots on "Dr. Kildare" and "Mr. Novak," and was handed a co-starring role in the "beach party" movie Delovye lyudi (1963) along with his TV pal Edd Byrnes.Logan's career went into a lull after a full season playing frontiersman Jericho Jones on Daniel Boone (1964), but resurfaced in the early 1970s as the adventurous hippy star of the popular "back to nature" family drama La Liberté sauvage (1975), which was written and directed by Stewart Raffill. Bob also starred in two other adventure films with a similar family Rocky Mountain theme, Across the Great Divide (1976) and Les naufragés de l'île perdue (1978), and showed up in two other "Wilderness" sequels as well -- The Further Adventures of the Wilderness Family (1978) and Mountain Family Robinson (1979). All four films involved writer/director Raffill. Becoming more or less the Michael Landon of outdoor family films, Bob went on to write and star in yet family-styled adventure story Kelly (1981).Logan made only sporadic returns to movie-making, usually playing gruff characters, in such films as the western comedy Catlow (1971) starring Yul Brynner, the ill-received steamy drama Strip Academy (1983) as the NASA husband of cheating cougar wife Lesley Ann Warren and the action film Scorpion (1986). He also starred in the backwoods thriller Man Outside (1987) co-starring Kathleen Quinlan and co-starred in the sports car racing independent Born to Race (1988) co-starring Joseph Bottoms.Away from the limelight for nearly a decade, Bob returned briefly to star in the Cold War comedy film spoof Redboy 13 (1997) and then he vanished again. He has one daughter from a 1960's marriage that ended in divorce.
