Robert Taylor


American actor who made over 70 films in 35 years. The son of a country doctor, he majored in music in college. He followed his music professor out to Pomona, CA and a performance in a college production led to a screen test and his career as an actor. He signed a long-term contract with MGM where he reigned as one of Hollywood's principal actors. He played with such great co-stars as Ava Gardner and Elizabeth Taylor, as well as Greta Garbo and Jean Harlow. He starred in the TV series "The Detectives" from 1959-1961.

During WW II he served as a flight instructor with the Navy's Air Transport and also directed Navy training films and narrated a full-length documentary "The Fighting Lady." Shunning his glamour- boy image, he acquired a reputation among directors as a no-nonsense professional.

In his personal life, he was married twice, Barbara Stanwyk 1939-1951 and to Ursula Thiess from 1954 until his death of lung cancer 6/08/1969, Santa Monica, CA.
