Sam Taylor

Sam Taylor (August 13, 1895, New York – March 6, 1958, Santa Monica) was a film director, screenwriter, and producer, most active in silent film era. Taylor is best known for his comedic directorial work with Harold Lloyd and Mary Pickford. 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 substantial documentary evidence that it ever existed.
