Prolific American director and actor (1872–1922) during the booming motion-picture industry of the 1910s and early 1920s; his unsolved murder at the age of 49 produced one of Hollywood’s largest scandals. Scarce vintage semi-glossy 8 x 10 Albert Witzel portrait of a seated and sharply dressed Taylor, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “All the good luck in the world—Dusty, from, Bill Taylor, 1917.” Reverse bears a photography credit stamp, as well as collector’s pencil notations. In fine condition, with vertical scratch to central background and signature contrast. The recipient of the photo was Dustin Farnum, a notable silent film and stage actor who is best remembered for his roles in westerns like Cecil B. DeMille's The Squaw Man. Taylor remains incredibly rare across all formats, with this being the third signed item we have ever offered.
