An Original Vintage Deluxe 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Publicity Still (Learn More)

Robert Taylor (born Spangler Arlington Brugh) was a handsome leading man from the 1930s to the 1960s, who barely seemed to age! He was born in 1911 in Nebraska, and in high school he was a star athlete, a cello player, and a debate champion. He intended to become a musician, but in college he joined a theater group and he was given lead roles. In 1934, he was signed by MGM to a contract, and the next year he had his big break in the first version of "Magnificent Obsession", opposite Irene Dunne. The following year, he starred opposite Greta Garbo in "Camille", and he was a great favorite with female moviegoers. He remained with MGM for 24 years, interrupted by a 4 year stint in the U.S. Naval Air Corps during World War II. In the 1930s, he raised and bred race horses! From 1939 to 1952, he was married to Barbara Stanwyck, and from 1954 until he passed away he was married to Ursula Theiss. Because he aged really well, he was able to play leading roles until the end of his career, when he switched to TV. Taylor passed away in 1969 at the age of 57.
Important Added Info: Note that in the 1930s and 1940s, stores would order cards like these by the thousands (a promo from Standard Oil) and have their store information printed on the blank areas on the back, and then they would be passed out to theatergoers on the street. This particular publicity still is printed on a deluxe paper, whereas most of them were printed on a thin paper. Also note that this publicity still has a FACSIMILE autograph that is within the printing of the still (the still has NOT been personally autographed).

Condition: very good.
