Cat. #00123112: RICHARD DENNING

Uncommon vintage 8x10-inch black and white portrait in middle age, boldly signed and inscribed in black felt-tip pen in the early 1980s. In good condition, with a few minor handling dings. Authoritative leading man Richard Denning, who was the longtime husband of scream queen Evelyn Ankers, starred in a long string of horror, sci-fi and fantasy flicks, including Television Spy (1939), Beyond the Blue Horizon (1942), Unknown Island (1948), Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), Target Earth (1954), Creature with the Atom Brain (1955), Day the World Ended (1955), The Black Scorpion (1957), and Twice-Told Tales (1963). Weary of B-level fare, he abandoned his film career in the 1970s, but over the course of three decades, had a recurring role as Governor Paul Jameson on T.V.'s "Hawaii Five-O" (1968-1980).
