Ben Hendricks, Jr. Biography

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

The son of stage actor [[Performer~P31727~Ben Hendricks~benhendrickssr]], 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 [[Performer~P87502~Reginald Denny~reginalddenny]] 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 [[Feature~V93134~Girl of the Golden West~girlofthegoldenwest]] (1930) before settling into bit roles. One of Ben Hendricks Jr.'s larger film assignments was the role of gangster Bugs Moran in [[Feature~V39616~The Public Enemy~thepublicenemy]] (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
