Ben Hendricks, Jr. Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Nov 2, 1893
  • Died: Aug 15, 1938

The son of stage actor Ben Hendricks, Ben Hendricks Jr. was 17 when he first stepped before a movie camera. During the 1920s, the younger Hendricks was a semi-regular in the Reginald Denny comedies at Universal, usually cast as Denny's slick, mustachioed brother-in-law. He made his first talkie appearance in 1929's The Wild Party, then went on to a handful of sizeable roles like Handsome Charlie in Girl of the Golden West (1930) before settling into bit roles. One of Ben Hendricks Jr.'s larger film assignments was the role of gangster Bugs Moran in The Public Enemy (1931), a part that was cut from all reissue prints due to legal pressure from the family of the real Bugs Moran. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
