Sad news from Hollywood as Rod Taylor has died at 84.
Taylor began his movie career 64 years ago, and appeared in such famous flicks as The Virgin Queen (1955), The Catered Affair (1956), Giant (1956), Raintree County (1957) and Separate Tables (1958), as well as being yet another key Twilight Zone player to die recently. (He was one of the astronauts in “And When the Sky Was Opened” in 1959.)
More famously, Taylor was Tippi Hedren's love interest in The Birds (1963) and as H.G. Wells in The Time Machine (1960).
I had not realized Taylor worked so recently, but he played Winston Churchill (see above) in the rather amazing Quentin Tarantino movie Inglourious Basterds in 2009.
