British playwright Reginald Denham most often worked in collaboration with Edward Percy. The most famous of Denham and Percy's theatrical pieces was the psychological melodrama Ladies in Retirement, which was filmed twice by Hollywood, the first time in 1941 and the second (as The Mad Room) in 1969. On his own, Denham launched a movie directorial career in 1934, helming such programmers as Death at Broadcasting House and Kate Plus Ten. Reginald Denham kept busy as a writer, producer and director throughout the 1940s; his activities trickled off in the early 1950s, but by the close of that decade he was back as director of the Gina Lollobrigida vehicle Anna of Brooklyn (released in the U.S. in 1959 as Fast and Sexy).
