I've never been sure about him as an actor, but his timing was always impeccable. Talk about a guy who was often in the right place at the right time: for Hitchcock in The Birds, for Antonioni in Zabriskie Point, for QT in Inglourious Basterds.

Yeah, I had high hopes for that film. But when I saw it on DVD a while ago I was disappointed. Not Mr. Taylor's fault, though.

A little while ago, happened to be watching TCM and saw a little comedy he made with Jane Fonda and Cliff Robertson called SUNDAY IN NEW YORK. He was pretty good in it. I also saw the first half of RAINTREE COUNTY, I'll try to catch the second half next time it plays on TCM. And of course, I have seen him in THE BIRDS.

RIP

There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.
