Portrait of Taylor Holmes
Taylor Holmes began his career in Vaudeville and made his Broadway debut in 1900 in the controversial play "Sapho." The production was briefly closed on the grounds of "indecency" for suggesting two unmarried characters were ascending a staircase to an unseen bedroom. Holmes appeared in more than 100 stage productions, but is probably best remembered for his many film performances. He played Marilyn Monroe's potential father-in-law in 1953's "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and voiced King Stefan in Disney's animated film "Sleeping Beauty" in 1959. In this photograph, he faces the camera with a confrontational gaze while keeping his hands tucked into his pocket.
