Dennis Morgan was born Stanley Morner in the small town of Prentice, Wisconsin. His first jobs in Hollywood were mostly bit parts, but he scored big after playing opposite Ginger Rogers in "Kitty Foyle: The Natural History of a Woman (1940)." He starred in films like "My Wild Irish Rose" (1947), "God Is My Co-Pilot" (1945) and "The Very Thought of You" (1944). He teamed up with buddy Jack Carson to do "Two Guys from Milwaukee" (1946), "Two Guys from Texas" (1948) and "It's a Great Feeling" (1949). Morgan retired in the late 1950s, but did cameos now and then. He and his wife were married for 61 years, and he passed away in 1994. He also had three children, Stanley Jr., Kristin and James. He truly is one of the legendary actors of the 1940s and his movies will never be forgotten. I hope he will always be remembered as a great star.

Morgan's film persona was an easy-going, good-natured ladies man in the best sense. He played good guys, never villains. A solid "Irish" tenor voice graced parts of his films (though he was actually of Swedish descent).
