Biography

A handsome, dark-haired leading man or second-lead, long associated with Vitagraph, Denton Vane had appeared in vaudeville with Maude Odell, played stock in Portland, OR, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, and appeared opposite Broadway luminaries Ethel Barrymore and Blanche Bates prior to making his screen debut with the Selig company as early as 1912. By 1915, he was appearing in Vitagraph productions opposite the likes of Norma Talmadge and screen vamp Virginia Pearson, and co-starred as Henry III in An Enemy of the King (1916). Vane seems to have returned to the legitimate stage when Vitagraph concentrated their production in Los Angeles around 1920. His death was attributed to a heart attack.
