OMG I love him so much! He's so cute!

AmberJul 29, 2010

Is that true? He had a twin??? Were you identical??? Robert Taylor is and always will be my favorite actor of all time! I only have about half (since he did so much) of his work in my collection, but I treasure it!


I don`t think Robert Taylor was ever nomiated for an Acadamy Award. That is truly amazing considering he was such a fine, fine actor.

I had no idea he had a twin brother---what a wonderful discovery....

I love him!!!!!!!

I would like to correct the trivia. He didn`t name "lots of names" to the House Unamerican Activities Committee. When Robert Taylor testified before HUAC (J. Parnell Thomas) on October 22, 1947, the first name he gave was Lowell Mellet, who was an assistant to President Roosevelt and agent of Office of War Information, and beside Louis B. Mayer forced Taylor to make the film Song of Rusia. Later he mentioned as disruptive elements within guild meetings Karen Morley, Howard Da Silva and Lester Cole.
