About Reginald Denham

Reginald Denham (10 January 1894 – 4 February 1983) was an English writer, theater and film director, actor and film producer.

Denham was born in London, England in 1894.

He spent a good part of his career directing Broadway theatre, with a career spanning from the melodrama Rope's End (1929) by Patrick Hamilton, to the courtroom drama Hostile Witness (1966).

He was married to Belfast actress Moyna Macgill (1917–1924), English actress Lilian Oldland, and American actress and writer Mary Orr (from 1947 until his death). While they were married, Denham and Orr were writing partners. His daughter with Macgill, Isolde, married actor Peter Ustinov when they were both 17.

He died following a stroke in Englewood, New Jersey.
