You might recognise Reginald Denny from his part as the personable estate manager in Hitchcock’s Rebecca (1940) or as Algy in the 1930s Bulldog Drummond series, but in his youth this dashing actor from Richmond, Surrey was the toast of Hollywood. This cracking farce on a ‘night before the wedding’ theme, scripted by Melville W Brown, showcases Denny’s gift for comedy and his likeable personality.
