Inscribed photograph signed: "To Harry M Wilkinson/from/Sincerely yours/Reginald Denny", in black ink, B/w 10¼x7¾. British stage, screen and television actor Reginald Denny(1891-1967) made his film debut in the silents in 1915, and by the 1920s, he was a popular star in light comedies. With the advent of "talkies", Denny found himself relegated to character roles due to his heavy British accent, but he continued to appear in a long list of feature films, including Of Human Bondage (1934), Anna Karenina (1935), Romeo and Juliet (1936), several Bull Drummond features (as Algernon "Algy" Longworth, 1937-1939), Rebecca (1940), Tangier (1946), The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947), Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1953), Cat Ballou (1965), Assault on a Queen (1966) and Batman (1966). After making his television debut in 1949, Denny appeared on a number of early anthologies, and he also guest starred on such series as Please Don't Eat the Daisies (1965) and Batman (two appearances as King Boris in 1966). In addition to his acting career, Denny, a WWI veteran who remained interested in aviation, had formed a company that built model plane kits, and, in 1940, he founded Radioplane, which built target drones for the U.S. Army.
