Extremely rare 1922 photograph of director William Desmond Taylor, on set with Betty Compson during a break in the filming of "The Green Temptation." Taylor was murdered in 1922 and this photo was talking about his recent death. Images of Taylor are extremely rare with this being the only example we have ever handled! Photo was issued by the International News and it presents well overall with some editorial paint from a newspaper artist and some handling wear (including pinholes).
