Madam Satan (1930) - Heaven Forgive Thee Kindly We’ve just met Kay Johnson as super-rich Angela, whose staff has been helping her ignore her husband having failed to come home, when he (Reginald Denny) and buddy Roland Young appear, and she provides them a graceful entrance, in the second feature in C.B. DeMille’s three-picture MGM deal, Madam Satan, 1930.
Madam Satan (1930) - Low Down Much talked about, the “other woman” to the husband of the wealthy couple Bob and Angela, Lillian Roth as performer and party-girl Trixie, Jack King, with Eddie Prinz on banjo and dancing, her accompanists, in a song by King and Elsie Janis, in Cecil B. DeMille’s unusual MGM musical-spectacle Madam Satan, 1930.
Madam Satan (1930) - The Cat Walk This is where the C.B. DeMille grandeur and MGM budget come forth, at the society ball on board a blimp where the neglected heroine is about to appear in exotic costume, with few identifiable actors, though the director’s daughter Katherine is one of the dancing cats, song by Herbert Stothart and Clifford Grey, in Madam Satan, 1930
Lost Patrol, The (1934) - I Could See From Here To Bloomsbury The Sergeant (Victor McLaglen) holds a strategy session with the whole squad, leading to cheerful Hale (Billy Bevan) volunteering to climb a tree, in John Ford's The Lost Patrol, 1934.
Lost Patrol, The (1934) - A Mohammedan Mosque The squad, led by "The Sergeant" (Victor McLaglen) at the oasis, in order, Brandon Hurst, Sammy Stein, Reginald Denny, J.M. Kerrigan, Boris Karloff, Douglas Watson, Paul Hanson, Alan Hale, in John Ford's The Lost Patrol, 1934.
Romeo And Juliet (1936) - A Madness Most Discreet First scene for Leslie Howard in the male lead role, visited by cousin Benvolio (Reginald Denny), in MGM's production of Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet, 1936, directed by George Cukor, co-starring Norma Shearer.
Romeo And Juliet (1936) - Time Out Of MInd En route to the masque at the house of Capulet, Leslie Howard as Romeo is the object of John Barrymore as friend Mercutio, delivering the MGM version of the what's known as Shakespeare's "Queen Mab" speech, in director George Cukor's Romeo And Juliet, 1936.
Bulldog Drummond Escapes (1937) - A Very Dynamic Person Through London fog Ray Milland emerges as the eighth actor to play freelance crime fighter Hugh “Bulldog” Drummond (Ronald Colman was first), his butler (E.E. Clive) and ever-distracted partner Algy (Reginald Denny) winning his attention, opening Bulldog Drummond Escapes, 1937.
Christmas Eve (1947) - We Have No License Opening scenes, we meet Philip (Reginald Denny) who's brought a judge and doctor (Clarence Kolb, Carl Harbord) to meet his maybe-nutty New York heiress Aunt Matilda (Ann Harding), in the holiday crime-comedy hybrid Christmas Eve (a.k.a. Holiday For Sinners), 1947.
Macomber Affair, The (1947) - They're Devils To Kill The opening not from Ernest Hemingway's short story but as devised by director Zoltan Korda and his screenwriters, Gregory Peck as African hunter Wilson, Joan Bennett the bereaved wife Margaret, Reginald Denny as colonial policeman Smollet, in The Macomber Affair, 1947.
Barbarian, The (1933) - Is Everyone In Egypt A Shriner? Hustling interpreter-for-hire Jamil (Ramon Novarro) is working the Cairo train station when his head is turned by Diana (Myrna Loy), arriving with her assistant (Louise Closser Hale), greeted by her uncle (C. Aubrey Smith), then fiance` Gerald (Reginald Denny), early in The Barbarian, 1933.
Barbarian, The (1933) - I Am Also A Prince Full marks to director Sam Wood for getting his leading lady (Myrna Loy, as "Diana") undressed, unaware she's being watched in her Cairo hotel by obsequious servant and guide Jamil (Ramon Novarro), her fiance` Gerald (Reginald Denny) soon breaking things up, in The Barbarian, 1933.
