    Mr taylor has been one of my favorite actors for many years. Every film he has been in was great due mostly to his superior acting skills. He made every role believable This man has a lot of class. Thank you, Mr. Taylor. D

    When I was a kid, I didn’t ever miss a film which had Rod Taylor in it. Liked Hong Kong and thought I wanted to go and see it one day, which I did in 1997, found it much more interesting in his series. Thank you Mr. Taylor.

    A very fine actor and one of those Drama / Action types that could do both roles with excellence. Very ruggedly handsome, and still at 84 has a rugged & rougish good looks.A great pity we have not seen him about in more Movies over the few decades.
