Forgotten Stars

Reginald Denny

Reginald Denny

“I’m honest when I say I never want to be a star again. It’s much better to be a featured player. If I’m a featured player I’m cast properly. A story comes up for consideration. It has been picked without thought of cast. There is a role that I may characterize. They give it to me. But when I’m a star they say, ‘Now we must find a story’ – vehicle, they insist upon calling it – for Denny – and they build a plot around my personality, making me exactly as I was in every film I’ve ever played.”Reginald Denny
