Gloria Henry (born Gloria McEniry; April 2, 1923) is an American actress, best known for her role as "Alice Mitchell", Dennis’s mother, from 1959-1963 on the CBS family sitcom, Dennis the Menace. Henry lived and grew up on the edge of the Garden District of New Orleans. She was educated at the Worcester Art Museum School. She moved to Los Angeles in her very late teens and worked on a number of radio shows and commercials using the stage name of Gloria Henry. She also performed in little theater groups. Signed by an agent, Henry transitioned into film work via Columbia Studios and made her debut as the female lead in the minor horse-racing film Sport of Kings (1947). The 1950s were an uneventful mixture of more "B" films and episodic TV guest parts such as My Little Margie (1952) and Perry Mason (1957). She was also a regular on the private eye series The Files of Jeffrey Jones (1954) starring Don Haggerty, but was written out of the show when she became pregnant.
