May 11, 1907
Kent Taylor was an American actor of film and television. Born Louis William Weiss in Nashua in northeastern 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, Cradle Song, Death Takes a Holiday, Payment on Demand, and Track the Man Down. He had the lead role in Half Past Midnight in 1948, among a few others. With no prior professional acting experience under his belt, Kent began working as a film extra in 1931 on the advice of a friend who said he had the right looks for "a good screen type." Prior to background work, he he was co-operator a awning service shop with his father. After a few very minor extra roles in films such as Kick In, he was called in "to try out a new camera idea;" a silent sequence was shot using Taylor and Claire Dodd, who was by then an established player at Paramount. The test led to Taylor being offered a contract with Paramount, which he signed on July 11, 1931.
