Taylor Holmes

Acteur né le 16 mai 1878 (décédé à 81 ans)


Taylor Holmes was an actor who appeared in over 100 Broadway plays in his five-decade career. However, he is probably best remembered for his film roles, which he began in silent movies in 1917. In one of his earliest films, he starred in A Pair of Sixes, produced by George K. Spoor.
By the 1940s, he was working more on film than on stage. Holmes played a number of memorable roles, including the gullible millionaire conned in Nightmare Alley, a shifty lawyer in Kiss of Death, the Bishop of Avranches, who fiercely denounces Pierre Cauchon in the Ingrid Bergman Joan of Arc, Marilyn Monroe's potential father-in-law in the 1953 Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and the voice of King Stefan in Disney's animated feature Sleeping Beauty - Holmes' last credited screen role. He also played Ebenezer Scrooge in what is largely considered a notoriously bad half-hour television version of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, first telecast in 1949.
He was married to actress Edna Phillips and was the father of actors Phillips Holmes, Madeleine Taylor Holmes and Ralph Holmes.
