Omnipresent, much-loved character actor, a fixture of Westerns for over 60 years. Taylor began in vaudeville playing the harmonica and the xylophone, and the latter talent came in handy when he made his film debut as the untalented xylophone-playing Ed Carmichael, one of a family of zanies peopling Frank Capra's adaptation of the George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart farce, "You Can't Take It With You" (1938). Although he can be spotted in that same year's delightful Ginger Rogers-Fred Astaire musical "Carefree" (1938), Taylor soon began hitting the dusty trail in "The Taming of the West" (1939), "The Man from Tumbleweeds" (1940), "Sagebrush Heroes" (1944) and dozens of others during the 1940s. He proved himself one of the best things to happen to fine "B" Westerns as he played comic sidekick first to Bill Elliott, then to Charles Starrett and later to Russell Hayden.
