Movie Stars: Taylor, Robert–Screen Image–Just a Pretty Face

Stewart Granger, who acted with Robert Taylor on the 1953 romantic adventure, commented on Taylor’s screen image:

“He was the easiest person to work with but he had been entirely emasculated by the MGM brass who insisted that he was only a pretty face. He was convinced he wasn’t really a good actor and his calm acceptance of this stigma infuriated me. He was such a nice guy, Bob, but he had even more hang-ups than I had.”
