Dennis Morgan

​Dennis Morgan was born Stanley Morner in the small town of Prentice, Wisconsin. His first jobs in Hollywood were mostly bit parts, but he scored big after playing opposite Ginger Rogers in Kitty Foyle (1940). He starred in films like My Wild Irish Rose (1947), God Is My Co-Pilot (1945) and The Very Thought of You (1944). He teamed up with buddy Jack Carson to do Two Guys from Milwaukee (1946), Two Guys from Texas (1948) and It's a Great Feeling (1949). His engaging performance as seaman "Jefferson Jones", with Barbara Stanwyck and a wonderful supporting cast, has made Christmas in Connecticut (1945) a holiday favorite. Morgan retired in the late 1950s, but did cameos now and then. He and his wife were married for 61 years, and he passed away in 1994. He also had three children, Stanley Jr., Kristin Morgan and James.
