Robert Taylor

Highest Rated: 100% Broadway Melody of 1938 (1937)

Lowest Rated: 0% Valley of the Kings (1954)

Birthday: Aug 05, 1911

Birthplace: Filley, Nebraska, USA

Dependable, clean-cut star who was signed by MGM while still in school, and spent most of his subsequent career with the company. Boyishly handsome, with a "perfect profile," Taylor highlighted many a light romance and was immensely popular for years after starring in "Magnificent Obsession" (1935). He eventually grew out of his pretty-boy good looks, became a solid, gritty performer, and made up for any lack of talent with a much-noted professionalism in a succession of epics ("Ivanhoe" 1951 "Knights of the Round Table" 1953) and Westerns ("The Hangman" 1959, "Cattle King" 1963) that punctuated his mature screen work. Married to Barbara Stanwyck from 1939 to 1951.

QUOTES FROM Robert Taylor CHARACTERS

Marcus Vinicius says: That beggar-faced philosopher shouldn't be stuffing your luscious little head with such nonsense.

Pat Hollmann says: This is a lovely time of day.

Erich Lohkamp says: It isn't day, it isn't night.

Erich Lohkamp says: Oh, I acted like an idiot.

Gottfried Lenz says: Send flowers! They cover everything, even graves.

Erich Lohkamp says: It's not generally known; but I sang in a choir once - and I've lived like a pig for years.
