She was discovered by Mack Sennett in February 1925 when he was looking for a blonde to play in a Harry Langdon comedy. She was chosen from around two hundred girls who responded to Sennett's call.

In 1920, Taylor played opposite Babe Ruth in Ruth`s biopic Heading Home. She was discovered by Mack Sennett in February 1925 when he was looking for a blonde to play in a Harry Langdon comedy. She was chosen from among two hundred girls who responded to Sennett`s call. Taylor was the only true blonde employed by the comedy producer at this time. In 1927 Taylor`s two-year contract with Mack Sennett expired. She was cast as Lorelei Lee in the silent movie version of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1928). Directed by Malcolm St. Clair, the film co-starred Alice White and Ford Sterling. Lorelei, as Anita Loos described her, was a cold-blooded, hard-boiled, hypocritical little gold digger, hard as granite, with baby-blue eyes and cooey little ways. She was a typical sinful lady that won gentleman`s hearts and incomes in 1927 A.D. During the search for Lorelei Lee 14,000 letters were received from fans by Paramount Pictures. Each suggested a choice of an actress for the role. In return every fan was mailed a photo of Ruth Taylor when she was selected for the part. It was the largest shipment of pictures of one person ever shipped from Hollywood. Anita Loos was determined that Taylor play the role of her literary character. Just Married (1928) was the first offering in what was billed as a new comedy team featuring Taylor and James Hall. Produced by B.P. Schulberg, the movie was directed by Frank R. Strayer. Taylor`s final screen credits are roles in A Hint To Brides (1929), The College Coquette (1929), This Thing Called Love (1929), and Scrappily Married (1930). Ruth Taylor died in Palm Springs, California in 1984.
