Distinguished-looking, gray-haired supporting actor Guy D'Ennery appeared only sporadically in films prior to the changeover to sound. Busy thereafter, D'Ennery usually played dignified characters -- his character in a 1937 Paramount B-film was simply given as "Dignified Man" -- but could also play villains, such as the henchman Mordaunt in Universal's Meet the Wildcat (1940). Of his scores of mostly minor roles, D'Ennery is best remembered for two wildly diverging versions of the "Zorro" legend: the 12-chapter serial Zorro's Fighting Legion, in which he was the governor of the beleaguered San Mendolito, dispatched in the opening chapter; and the high-budget 20th Century Fox spectacular The Mark of Zorro (1940), as one of the California nobles, of which he was one in real life as well. D'Ennery continued playing bit roles on screen until at least 1943.
