The 'brains' and 'action' heavies who had meaty roles and lots of dialog ... and the players who were fathers, ranch owners, lawman, mayors, judges, lawyers, storekeepers, newspaper editors, wardens, etc.

Dennis Moore

Real name:
Dennis Price Meadows

Screen nicknames:
'Denny', 'Smoky'

1908 - 1964

Left is Dennis Moore - at about 37 years of age - and wearing his unique custom gunbelt with the two side buckles.

Above are screen captures of a very young Dennis Moore (about 27 years old) along with the opening credits from John Wayne's THE DAWN RIDER (Lone Star/Monogram, 1935). Moore was billed third as "Denny Meadows". He did another with Wayne, THE LONELY TRAIL (Republic, 1936), and was billed as "Dennis Meadows".
Dennis Price Meadows was born in Fort Worth, Texas in 1908. His parents were Tennessee born Bessie Price and Texas born Dennis Wesley Meadows and his occupation was livestock buyer / dealer. The family was in Fresno, California in 1918 when father Dennis registered for the World War I draft. And they had re-located to El Paso, Texas when the 1920 census was taken.

Dennis was a fairly handsome guy ... and his biggest asset was a great voice. He became one of the more prolific cowboy and serial players during the 1930s through early 1950s. And he was one of a few actors who successfully bounced back and forth playing hero, second lead / sidekick and villain.

His Hollywood career began in the 1930s under his real name of Dennis 'Denny' Meadows, and his early film work included westerns with John Wayne, Gene Autry, Johnny Mack Brown, Jack Perrin, others. The name change to "Dennis Moore" occurred circa 1936 when he was signed to a (brief) contract with Warners. Appears that he also did some early 1930s stock theater and the October 7, 1933 issue of Hollywood Filmograph has Denny Meadows in the cast of the play 'Louder Please' at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles. Ken Murray was the star and other players included Sheila Terry, Mathew Betz, Dorothy Dix and Richard Cramer.

From the mid 1930s through the early 1940s, Moore did character roles and bit parts at major studios and Poverty Row companies. Examples: he did westerns with Tim Holt at RKO and with Buster Crabbe and the Frontier Marshal trio at Producers Releasing Corporation (PRC). Frequently employed by Monogram Pictures, Dennis can be spotted in Jack Randall and Rough Riders sagebrushers, the Tailspin Tommy aviation yarns, comedies with the East Side Kids, and Frankie Darro / Mantan Moreland features.

He had the lead in the color short MAN FROM TASCOSA which was lensed circa 1939 or 1940 by the Cinecolor company and distributed primarily through the Monogram exchanges. A few years later, TASCOSA was acquired by Warner Bros., re-titled to WELLS FARGO DAYS (Warners, 1944), and released as part of their Santa Fe Trail series (which most often featured Robert Shayne who portrayed 'Inspector Henderson' on TV's Superman).

Les Adams reminded me of a couple Moore starrers: "Harry S. Webb made two Rin-Tin-Tin Jr. films films back-to-back in the San Bernardino Mountains in 1939 with virtually the same cast on both - FANGS OF THE WILD and LAW OF THE WOLF (both Metropolitan, 1939). Some sources think they are the same film, but they aren't. Dennis Moore and Luana Walters starred in both, and the two casts are virtually identical, with a couple of exceptions."

To B western fans, Moore is best remembered wearing a white hat and tailored hero shirt and playing "second fiddle" to the star:

Yes! There was a fight between Moore and Wakely in August, 1945, and details are further down this webpage.

Comparing second lead Dennis Moore to Russell Hayden or James Elliison is fair game. But their roles in the Hopalong Cassidy adventures were expanded due to longer running times, good scripts and bigger budgets. And when they got into trouble or romantic entanglements, Hayden and Ellison could get away with saying sumthin' like "Aw shucks Hoppy!". Not so with Moore whose screen persona was serious and restrained.

In the post World War II period, Moore appears in Johnny Mack Brown and Whip Wilson Monograms and with singing cowboy Eddie Dean at Producers Releasing Corporation (PRC). In 1950, he was the principal heavy vs. Lash LaRue in KING OF THE BULLWHIP (Ron Ormond/Western Adventure, 1950). Also in 1950, he's a gang member in the six film series for Lippert Pictures that starred former Hopalong Cassidy saddle pals Russell Hayden and James Ellison.

He wore a unique gunbelt which buckled on the sides, not in the middle, and he'd either have one holster or two. I've included stills and lobby cards showing that gunbelt.

Dennis had better luck, better billing, and lots of screen time in serials. He was the lead or co-star in RAIDERS OF GHOST CITY (Universal, 1944; 13 chapters), THE MASTER KEY (Universal, 1945; 13 chapters), and Universal's last chapterplay, MYSTERIOUS MR. M. (Universal, 1946; 13 chapters). In between those cliffhanger assignments, Universal used him in other films including the Tex Ritter oaters and a character part in THE MUMMY'S CURSE (Universal, 1945). And it was Dennis vs. Roy Barcroft in THE PURPLE MONSTER STRIKES (Republic, 1945; 15 chapters). A decade later, he was the star/co-lead in the last two serials that were filmed, BLAZING THE OVERLAND TRAIL (Columbia, 1956; 15 chapters) and PERILS OF THE WILDERNESS (Columbia, 1956; 15 chapters). The episode total for those equals 84 chapters ... meaning Dennis Moore was on the screen ... a lot. Also note that Moore had the distinction of being in the last serial churned out by Universal and Columbia Pictures.

He became a fairly prolific performer on 1950s television and you can spot him in WILD BILL HICKOK, WAGON TRAIN, CISCO KID, BUFFALO BILL JR., GENE AUTRY SHOW, WYATT EARP, BAT MASTERSON, TOMBSTONE TERRITORY, lots more. Long time ago, I was watching the old SPIN AND MARTY TV series on the Disney channel. Harry Carey Jr. and Roy Barcroft had recurring roles, and in season three, an older Dennis Moore - sporting several days of beard stubble - was ranchhand 'Hank'.

Moore's deep, rich voice was in THIRTY SECONDS OVER TOKYO (MGM, 1944). In scenes on the aircraft carrier Hornet, you can hear him barking out commands and warnings over the ship's intercom to the sailors and Doolittle Raiders. In the trailer for the Glenn Ford and Jack Lemmon COWBOY (Columbia, 1958), Moore wears a white shirt and tie and introduces the film. The ALL-STAR WESTERN THEATER radio program was broadcast from August, 1946 through August, 1948 and starred Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage. Dennis Moore was the star of 'The Phantom Rider' broadcast on December 22, 1946.

As to Dennis Moore the man, contemporaries including Myron Healey and Gregg Barton described him as a loner ... a private man ... not a team player. Screenwriter C. Jack Lewis worked with Moore on Lash LaRue's KING OF THE BULLWHIP (Ron Ormond/Western Adventure, 1950). In his book White Horse, Black Hat: A Quarter Century on Hollywood's Poverty Row (Scarecrow Press, 2002), Lewis described him as an unhappy fellow, possibly due to a plane crash which ended his flying career. A few quotes from Lewis' book:

" ... his constant off-stage expression was somewhere between a scowl and a frown, and he answered questions with as few words as possible. I found it easiest to stay away from him."

"... I could never get more than three words out of the scowling actor. It was pretty clear that he didn't like what he was doing, and I didn't understand why he continued to act."

I'm inclined to take those negatives with a grain of salt. Les Adams has Moore identified in about 175 films and that number includes 100+ westerns and eleven serials. Add in 90 or so TV appearances and Dennis was a busy man and his career spanned almost thirty years, from about 1932 - 1961. If he was cranky, ornery and a miserable human being, he wouldn't have gotten that much work.

The Lewis book - as well as other biographies - note that Moore was a pilot, loved flying, and was a flight instructor at Whitman [sic] Airport in the San Fernando Valley. But he was severely injured in a plane crash. Correction to those other bios - it's Whiteman Airport in the San Fernando Valley - more info is further down on this webpage. Was hopeful that I'd find some trace of the crash in trade publications or newspapers. Alas - nothing found. I even checked the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) websites but their online plane crash records do not include the 1930s - 1950s. Jack Lewis discussed the plane crash in his book:

"He gave up show biz to fly as a transport pilot, but was involved in a crash that put him in the hospital for fourteen months. The only item the research library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has on this gent is a studio biography issued by the long-defunct RKO in 1941. ... says the actor broke 'every bone in his body' in the plane crash, but that has be be press agent overstatement. He never could have made it through the rough-and-tumble fight scenes of the low-budget picture world with those types of injuries."

Moore was buddies with actor Andy Devine who was also a pilot and had ties to Whiteman Airport. Aviation veteran Dick Probert and Andy established the Probert-Devine Aviation Corporation in 1946 at Whiteman Air Park. And Moore worked with them ... or for them. You'll find more details below on Moore, Andy Devine, and the Whiteman and Newhall airports.

Dennis was married at least three times. He was divorced at the time of the 1940 census. There was a September, 1942 marriage to Dorothy Alixe Cotton and he tied the knot with Marilyn Estelle Mason in 1947. Daughter Linda Meadows was born in 1950. And in 1952, Dennis, Marilyn and Linda received court approval to change their last name from Meadows to Moore.

Circa 1960, Dennis and Marilyn bought and operated the Brown Bear Gift Shop at Big Bear Lake, San Bernardino County, California. Suffering from heart problems due to rheumatic fever, Moore passed away on March 1, 1964 at his Big Bear Lake home.

Moore did not do military service in World War II, probably due to either plane crash injuries or medical issues from rheumatic fever.

Dennis Moore's nearly thirty year movie and television career is significant and he's one of my favorite B western and serial performers.

Dennis Moore MOVIE stats.

Dennis Moore's movie work from 1932-1957 in westerns, serials, shorts, and other A and B grade films. Does NOT include TV roles. I've used the RELEASE dates (not filming dates) from the Internet Movie Database. Total films in this chart = 178.
1932 1933 1934 1935 1936 1937 1938 1939 1940 1941 1942 1943 1944 1945 1946 1947 1948 1949 1950 1951 1952 1953 1954 1955 1956 1957
Red indicates the years in which Moore was the lead or co-star in six serials: RAIDERS OF GHOST CITY (Universal, 1944), THE MASTER KEY (Universal, 1944), THE PURPLE MONSTER STRIKES (Republic, 1945), THE MYSTERIOUS MR. M (Universal, 1946), PERILS OF THE WILDERNESS (Columbia, 1956), and BLAZING THE OVERLAND TRAIL (Columbia, 1956).

In 1953, he did no films and one TV show (an episode of Superman). Was 1953 the year when he was injured in that plane crash?

  Although some of the data is incomplete or inaccurate, the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has information on Dennis Moore:

Daniel Neyer's "The Files of Jerry Blake" serial website has a webpage on Dennis Moore doing serials:

Boyd Magers' Western Clippings website has a profile on Dennis Moore:

YouTube has the trailer for the Glenn Ford and Jack Lemmon COWBOY (Columbia, 1958). Introducing the film is Dennis Moore:

YouTube and the Internet Archive have public domain films with Moore which you can view or download:[]=%22dennis%20moore%22#collection-date-archived

All-Star Western Theater was broadcast from August, 1946 through August, 1948 and starred Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage. This half-hour program was initially broadcast over station KNX, The 'Voice of Hollywood'. Later shows were on the Mutual/Don Lee Broadcasting System. Many western movie performers appeared on the program and Dennis Moore was featured in 'The Phantom Rider' from December 22, 1946. That show is available on YouTube and the Internet Archive:

More on Moore's flying ... plane crash ... crashes.
I've discovered nothing new on Dennis Moore and plane crashes. However, there are irregularities and questions in the several biographies / profiles on the man.

The Jack Lewis book mentions Moore's 1941 RKO studio biography and that he broke 'every bone in his body' in a plane crash (which means it happened in 1941 or earlier).

Boyd Magers Western Clippings website notes that Moore was a transport pilot and the accident occurred in 1952: "The crash left him with every bone in his body broken and small hope for him to live. Fourteen months in the hospital and nearly two more years of rest and recovery made him as good as new."

Looking at the Moore movie chart above, his workload is light in 1952-1954. But if you include television appearances, 1953 is a year with only one TV and film job. Was that the year of the crash and his recovery?

And then we have Moore as a flight instructor ... or flying out of ... Whitman Airport in the San Fernando Valley. There is no Whitman Airport in the San Fernando Valley. But there is a Whiteman Airport and Wikipedia has a webpage: "Whiteman Airport (previously known as Whiteman Air Park) is a general aviation airport in the northeastern San Fernando Valley community of Pacoima, in the city of Los Angeles, California. The airport was founded as 'Whiteman Air Park' in 1946 on a farm by pilot Marvin Whiteman Sr. as a non tower controlled, private airport.":

Moore was pals with actor Andy Devine who was also a pilot. Aviation veteran Dick Probert and Devine established the Probert-Devine Aviation Corporation in 1946 at Whiteman Airpark near Pacoima, California. Moore worked for them.

The September 23, 1948 Newhall (California) Signal newspaper had reports of a plane crash at the Newhall Airport. The pilot had ignored warnings to not take off due to fog and visibility problems. Excerpt from article: "Dennis Moore, field manager for the Propert-Devine Corporation which leases and operates the field, did not like the look of things. He sought to dissuade (pilot) Joseff from taking off ..."

As we find more on Moore as a pilot / flight instructor and/or plane crashes, we'll update this section.

The August, 1945 fight between Jimmy Wakely and Moore.
Jimmy Wakely's daughter Linda Wakely (nicknamed 'Lindalee' by her Dad) authored a biography on her father titled See Ya Up There, Baby - The Jimmy Wakely Story (Shasta Records, 1992). Lindalee wrote about the altercation between her Dad and Moore. My paraphrase on the event - in late August, 1945, during a drinking session with some cowboy film cohorts, Moore got agitated about playing saddle pal to Wakely. Inebriated, he went to Wakely's home, some fisticuffs ensued, and Wakely was wounded in the head from a knife. Moore was taken into custody, but Jimmy refused to press charges.

There were newspaper reports on the incident:

In the September 1, 1945 Los Angeles (California) Times newspaper. Headline: "Movie Cowboys Call Off Quarrel." ; "... walked into (Deputy District Attorney Howard) Hinshaw's office and said they wanted to forget the whole thing."

Excerpts from the syndicated "Hollywood News and Previews" column from a September 2, 1945 newpaper: "... Wakely and Dennis Moore, who staged a pre-dawn fight Friday with a hammer and knife for weapons, have buried the hatchet after a visit to the district attorney's office. They laid the fracas to 'professional jealousy.' " ; "Deputy District Attorney Howard Hinshaw persuaded them to shake hands and 'forget the whole thing.'" ; "... Moore allegedly gashed Wakely across the head with the knife, and Wakely conked Moore with a hammer."

What caused this "professional jealousy"? Moore (and Lee 'Lasses' White) were helpers in Wakely's first two oaters, SONG OF THE RANGE (Monogram, 1944) and SPRINGTIME IN TEXAS (Monogram, 1945). Then Moore was replaced by John James. That demotion may have been the trigger that set Moore off.

Yet ... I wonder about the seriousness of their August, 1945 battle as Moore is employed in four more Wakelys (but not as Jimmy's sidekick). And as mentioned earlier, he also picks up paychecks doing Monogram oaters with Johnny Mack Brown and Whip Wilson.
