Ronald Reagan is known as one of our greatest presidents, but he was also known as a pretty good actor, too, having made over 50 movies. He briefly touched the A List for starring roles in "Knute Rockne – All American" and "Kings Row." But with the outbreak of World War II, Reagan's military service took precedence and his career never really recovered.

Despite this, he was a reliable B movie actor for many years and often got more fan mail at his studio than others, including Errol Flynn. In fact, Reagan received so much mail; he hired his mother, Nelle, to handle it along with a team of other women.
