DeWitt Jennings Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jun 21, 1879
  • Died: Mar 1, 1937

Stocky, stiff-backed actor DeWitt C. Jennings made his film bow in Cecil B. DeMille's [[Feature~V116010~The Warrens of Virginia~thewarrensofvirginia]] (1915). After scores of silents, Jennings made a seamless transition to talkies, appearing in half a dozen films in 1929 alone. He was usually cast as gruff police captains or baffled suburban fathers (he was Harold Lloyd's dad in 1932's [[Feature~V103005~Movie Crazy~moviecrazy]]). Generally dignified and reserved, DeWitt C. Jennings was afforded a rare opportunity to tear a passion to tatters as the "mystery" murderer (one of the most obvious in movie history) in 1934's [[Feature~V124938~Death on the Diamond~deathonthediamond]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
