From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Taylor in 1926

Sam Taylor (August 13, 1895, New York City – March 6, 1958, Santa Monica) was a film director, screenwriter, and producer, most active in the silent film era. Taylor is best known for his comedic directorial work with Harold Lloyd and Mary Pickford, and also later worked with Laurel and Hardy.

A notorious cinematic legend over the decades has suggested that Taylor's 1929 adaptation of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew had the screen credit "additional dialogue by Sam Taylor." However, no extant prints of the film contain this credit, and there is no documentary evidence that it ever existed.
