American actor who specialized in western films and film serials, becoming a familiar face in westerns but never a major star.
He began appearing in short subjects and low-budget feature films in the 1930s under the name "Denny Meadows," and enjoyed greater recognition and employment after he changed his professional name to Dennis Moore. His dark looks and solemn demeanour kept him working steadily as an all-purpose utility player, in both heroic and villainous roles.
He also appeared on television in the syndicated The Range Rider, with Jock Mahoney and Dick Jones, in the 1955 CBS series Brave Eagle with Keith Larsen, and in the 1956 episode "Panhandle" of the CBS series, Tales of the Texas Rangers, with Willard Parker and Harry Lauter.
He also guest starred on the syndicated adventure series, Rescue 8, starring Jim Davis and Lang Jeffries; the crime drama, U.S. Marshal, starring John Bromfield; and the NBC western Riverboat, starring Darren McGavin.
Moore played leads or second leads in serials and holds the distinction of having appeared in the very last serials produced by Universal Pictures in 1946 and Columbia Pictures in 1956.
He died on 1 March 1964, aged 56, in San Bernardino, California.
