Morning Man Classic: Rod Taylor!



Tippi Hedren is not the only beautiful star in The Birds. Her leading man, Rod Taylor, was a real stunner too.

I saw the movie in early 2013 at a 50th anniversary screening and was just taken aback by this handsome man who somehow, I had not been all that familiar with.

Taylor, who died in 2015, was born 90 years ago today.

He was still acting until near the end including a role in Quenton Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds.

The Australian actor came to Hollywood in the 1950s and built himself up from a supporting actor into taking the lead in several well-remembered movies in addition to The Birds including 1960′s The Time Machine, 1963′s Sunday in New York, the title role in 1965′s Young Cassidy and 1973′s The Great Train Robbery with John Wayne.

In the 70s and 80s, Taylor began regularly working in television including the leads in the TV series including Bearcats!, Masquerade and Outlaws.

5 Remarks

  1. I liked him in the time machine, at least it was the first time I noticed him. I remember the Birds and the Birds took the whole film. On his looks, he got better with age.

  2. He always dressed up a screen with his great look and physique.

  3. And don’t forget Hotel and The Vips with Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton! He was strikingly handsome.

  4. Hey Greg – just a personal note to you… the 1973 movie referenced in this column as “The Great Train Robbery” with John Wayne was actually title “The Train Robbers” and Rob starred with Ann-Margret and John Wayne. Thanks buddy! Jimmy Short in Sacramento.

  5. the birds?? I ONLY HAD EYES FOR HIM…ONE OF MY FIRST CRUSHES AND IN “HOTEL” EVEN MORE….THANKS FOR REMINDING ALL OF US WHAT A HANDSOME HUNK HE WAS!!!
