Robert Taylor

ROBERT TAYLOR (1911-1969), born Spangler Arlington Brugh

Taylor was kidded about his overly good (is that possible?) looks and undervalued as an actor. So he starred in films for 30+ years, married Barbara Stanwyck, and didn't sweat it.

Johnny Eager
Haven't you seen Johnny Eager (1942)? Super film noir. With Lana Turner and his mustache.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Camille (1936) One of the most romantic films of all time. With Greta Garbo and no mustache.
Waterloo Bridge (1940) Beautiful love story. With Vivien Leigh and his mustache.
Magnificent Obsession (1935) The first film version...and the best. With Irene Dunne and no mustache.
Quo Vadis (1951) A gran'daddy of Biblical epics. With Deborah Kerr and no mustache.
