Kent Taylor

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Kent Taylor (May 11, 1907 – April 11, 1987) was an American actor. Born Louis William Weiss in Nashua, Iowa, Taylor appeared in more than 110 films, the bulk of them B-movies in the 1930s and 1940s, although he also had roles in more prestigious studio releases, including I'm No Angel (1933), Death Takes a Holiday (1934), Payment on Demand (1951), and Track the Man Down (1955). In the 1950s, with his movie career on the decline and television production on the upswing, he played the title role in 58 episodes of the detective series Boston Blackie and the lead in 39 episodes of ABC's The Rough Riders (1958–1959). Other small screen credits include My Little Margie, Tales of Wells Fargo, Zorro, Bat Masterson, Peter Gunn, and Hawaiian Eye. The last years of his career were spent in slasher and horror films with titles like Satan's Sadists, Blood of Ghastly Horror, I Spit on Your Corpse, and Hell's Bloody Devils. Taylor is interred at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
