As you all know I am SUPER excited about the Reunion events in CA in September!
Ray has told me that if I can find Dennis Kort ("The Genius") he will send him an invite - he has had no luck locating him.
I haven't either! It's like he fell off the planet after 1981. I found a couple of people by that name. Unfortunately on an ancestry site I found a death record by a fellow of the same name of the appropriate age. I really hope it's not him!
He's an ACTOR for goodness' sake - how can there be no information anywhere on him?
If any of y'all have some time to kill, I would much appreciate some assistance.
I tried and tried, but I can't come up with anything for you I tried many different searches, and finally I typed into google," Actor Dennis Kort, where are you?"" and the first response was " do you mean you are looking for Scooby Doo? ;D
I did that search again, but I came up with nothing...sorry
Have you tried the Internet Movie Database? It lists all the things he was in as an actor, and if you scroll down, there is a message board with some posts about him. A couple of people say they know him. One wrote: "I have known Dennis for 36 years. He was a VERY good actor. But, he is a WONDERFUL human being, friend and father. As posted above, several of his more memorable roles were as arrogant intellectuals. Dennis is indeed quite the intellectual, but is in no way arrogant. And, as posted above, he is quite adorable."
Maybe you could try to contact this person. Good luck.
I'm afraid that he may not want to be found..... Nowadays, with the internet, it's usually an easy task to find someone -- unless they have carefully "covered their tracks." That may be the case..... Woe.
I found a contact email to another actor (Rex Sikes) who co-starred with him in 'Massacre at central high', I'm going to contact him and see if he happens to still keep in touch with Dennis or knows of someone who does.
EDIT: I actually called Rex on the phone just a couple minutes ago and he said he's been trying for 30+ years to find out where Dennis went too! He mentioned that last he knew, he heard Dennis was in San Pedro. he told me if anyone finds out anything to let him know! out all the co-stars he worked with on that film, he's the only one that none of the cast can locate.
