A gifted storyteller, Ray Taylor managed to captivate audiences with his unique directing style. Taylor began his entertainment career directing independent films, including early work on the Wallace MacDonald western "Fighting With Buffalo Bill" (1926), the William Desmond western "The Vanishing Rider" (1928) and the Frank Merrill adventure "Tarzan, the Mighty" (1928). He also appeared in "The One Way Trail" (1931), "The Jungle Mystery" (1932) and "Gordon of Ghost City" (1933). He continued to work in film in the thirties and the forties, directing motion pictures like "Dick Tracy" (1937), "Drums of Destiny" (1937) and the western "Sudden Bill Dorn" (1937) with Buck Jones. He also appeared in "The Adventures of Smilin' Jack" (1943). Nearing the end of his career, Taylor directed the western "The Lone Star Trail" (1943) with Johnny Mack Brown, "Mystery of the River Boat" (1944) and "Raiders of Ghost City" (1944). He also appeared in "Jungle Queen" (1945) and "Secret Agent X-9" (1945). Taylor was most recently credited in "Adventures of the Flying Cadets" (2004). Taylor was nominated for an Outstanding Writing In a Comedy-Variety or Music Series Primetime Emmy Award for "Cher" in 1975. Taylor passed away in February 1952 at the age of 64.
