Dub Taylor

Dub Taylor

Dub was cast in his first film, ''[[You Can't Take It With You]]'', because he knew how to play the xylophone, which was a requirement for the character.

Dub was on Johnny Carson one night. He played the Xylophone using 3 mallets in each hand. It was a phenomenal performance.

Father of actor Buck Taylor, with whom he appeared in Conagher (1991) (TV).

Grandfather of Adam C. Taylor, Matthew Taylor, and Cooper Taylor.

Grandfather-in-law of actress/producer Anne Lockhart.

He outlived his grandson Adam C. Taylor by four months.

He was a sidekick to Western Movie heroes: Charles Starrett (The Durango Kid), Russell Hayden (Lucky), Don "Red" Barry (Red Ryder)," Wild Bill" Elliott and Jimmy Wakely.

His family moved to Augusta, Georgia when he was five.

His life was chronicled in 2007 in a feature length documentary, "That Guy: The Legacy of Dub Taylor," directed by Mark Ezra Stokes and produced by James Kicklighter.

Older generations will remember Dub as Ivan Moss in "Bonnie And Clyde" (1967).

Once explained that, as a boy, he had been called "W" as a nickname for his first name Walter. That was later shortened to just "Dub."
