His second wife, Mary Beth Hilem, died on March 7, 2009.


As the movie finished with George, and his best friend Filby Alan Young seemingly parting forever, both actors were brought back together in 1993 to film a 30 minute epilogue to the original movie! Taylor's virile, matinée idol looks also assisted him in scoring the lead of Mitch Brenner in Alfred Hitchcock's creepy thriller The Birds (1963), the role of Jane Fonda's love interest in Sunday in New York (1963), the title role in John Ford's biopic of Irish playwright Sean O'Casey in Young Cassidy (1965), and a co-starring role in The Train Robbers (1973) with John Wayne.


Was originally considered for the role of Roper in Enter the Dragon (1973) but was thought to be too tall, compared to the actor he'd be sharing many action scenes with, Bruce Lee -- the part eventually played by John Saxon.


Aditionally, Taylor was cast as the lead in several TV series including Bearcats! (1971), Masquerade (1983), and Outlaws (1986); however, none of them truly ignited viewer interest, and they were canceled after only one or two seasons.


In the early 1970s he saved the Australian Opera (now Opera Australia) with a $250,000 donation.


20th Century-Fox considered him for the astronaut role in 1968's Planet of the Apes (1968) but, perhaps seeking a bigger box office name, gave the part to Charlton Heston.


He also gave a sterling performance as the German-American Nazi Major trying to fool James Garner in 36 Hours (1964).


Arguably his most fondly remembered role was that as George (Herbert George Wells), the inventor, in George Pal's spectacular The Time Machine (1960).

Later Taylor made many westerns and action movies during the 1960s and 1970s; however, none of them were much better than "B pictures" and failed to push his star to the next level.


He was considered to star with John Wayne in Rio Bravo (1959), Circus World (1964) and The War Wagon (1967), before he finally got to work with Wayne in The Train Robbers (1973).


Taylor also appeared as Bette Davis future son-in-law in the well-received film The Catered Affair (1956).


Suave and handsome Australian actor who came to Hollywood in the 1950s, and built himself up from a supporting actor into taking the lead in several well-remembered movies.
