Taylor Holmes

Taylor Holmes was an actor who appeared in over 100 Broadway plays in his five-decade career. However, he’s probably best remembered for his film roles, which he began in silent movies in 1917 before working more in films than on stage in the 1940s. Holmes played a number of memorable roles, including the gullible millionaire conned in Nightmare Alley, a shifty lawyer in Kiss of Death and the voice of King Stefan in Disney’s animated feature Sleeping Beauty – Holmes’ last credited screen role. He was married to actress Edna Phillips and was the father of actors Phillips Holmes, Madeleine Taylor Holmes, and Ralph Holmes.
