Robert Taylor in Paris, 1949

Original caption: While in England to appear in M-G-M’s Conspirator, Robert Taylor pays a weekend visit to Paris, France, with his old flying pal Ralph Couser, who accompanied him on the trip abroad. Here actor and aviator are pictured around the French capital.

Mr. Taylor pauses to admire the work of one of the sidewalk artists who dot the streets in the left bank area.

The artist senses a potential sale.

At a sidewalk newstand they buy a French newspaper.

Taking in the city from the Eiffel Tower.

Taylor and Couser on the steps leading to Sacre Coeur, beautiful cathedral which stands on the hills overlooking Paris.

In the shadow of the celebrated Notre Dame cathedral, Taylor signs his name for a Parisian fan who happened to recognize him.

I’m not sure of the location of this one.

I became a Robert Taylor fan at the age of 15 when his TV show, "The Detectives" premiered. My mother wanted to watch it because she remembered Mr. Taylor from the thirties. I took one look and that was it. I spent the rest of my high school career watching Robert Taylor movies on late night TV, buying photos of him, making scrapbooks and being a typical teenager. College, marriage and career intervened. I remember being sad when Mr. Taylor died. I mailed two huge scrapbooks to Ursula Thiess. I hope she got them. Time passed, retirement, moving to Florida. Then in 2012 my husband Fred pointed that there were two Robert Taylor movies that evening on Turner Classic Movies--"Ivanhoe" and "Quentin Durward." I watched both and it happened all over again. I started this blog both for fans and for people who didn't know about Robert Taylor. As the blog passes 200,000 views I'm delighted that so many people have come by and hope it will help preserve the legacy of this fine actor and equally good man.
