Description: 

Taylor Holmes began his career in vaudeville and made his Broadway debut in 1900 in the controversial play "Sapho", which was briefly closed for indecency (for suggesting two unmarried characters were ascending a staircase to an unseen bedroom). He appeared in more than 100 stage productions but is probably best remembered for his many film performances. Holmes played Marilyn Monroe's potential father-in-law in 1953's "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", and voiced King Stefan in Disney's animated film "Sleeping Beauty" in 1959. In this photograph, he faces the camera with a confrontational gaze yet his hands are pocketed.
