Vintage 8×10 matte finish black and white head and shoulders studio portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To/Hortense + Jack/Best Wishes/Kent Taylor.”  Very fine condition.  Kent Taylor appeared in over 100 films and made numerous television appearances in a career that spanned over four decades, but with diminishing quality as the years went on. At his peak in the 1930s and early ’40s, he played lead roles in “B” films and second leads in “A” films, with his combination of good looks and a less than forceful personality unable to propel him into the ranks of top stars.
