Frank Reicher

Frank Reicher

Frank Reicher (2 December 1875 - 19 January 1965), was a German actor, director and producer born in Munich, Germany who eventually emigrated to the United States. During the early part of the twentieth century he was often on Broadway, occasionally in leading roles, but he is most familiar to modern audiences as a supporting character actor in films. He is probably best known for playing Captain Englehorn in the movies "King Kong" and "The Son of Kong" in 1933. He was the son of actor Emanuel Reicher, and brother of actress Hedwiga Reicher.

On stage, Reicher starred in such plays as the first Broadway production of Georg Kaiser's "From Morning to Midnight" (as the cashier), and the original production of Percy MacKaye's "The Scarecrow" (in the title role).
