The quintessential English gentleman, actor Michael Denison brought elegance and charm to his numerous performances in theater, film and television. He had a long and successful career, appearing in stage and screen productions regularly until his death in 1998. Denison made his stage debut in 1938 as Lord Fancourt Babberly in a Frinton-on-Sea production of "Charley's Aunt". That same year, he made his West End debut at the Westminster Theatre, playing Paris in "Troilus and Cressida". The next year he made his first appearance in the medium that years later would make him a household name in his native Britain when the BBC televised a performance of "Marco Millions" from the Westminster Theatre. Also in 1939, Denison married fellow actor Dulcie Gray whom he met when they were both students at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art.
