My father in law, Ed Poltrack, was a detective in The Horror of Party Beach, and we've watched the film many times with family. Always a great experience that has brought us together. As a sci fi writer (Star Trek: TNG, Stargate SG1), I've always been inspired by filmmakers like Del Tenney who had the courage to create their own unique vision on the screen. God bless, Del.
Thank You for the movies you made that started mt life long love with films. God Bless You Mr Tenny for the legacy you leave behind.
My deep condolences. We have lost not just an artist but a good man.
Thank you so much for all of your cult movie classics. May the memory of "The Horror of Party Beach" live on forever! RIP and thank you.
Thank you for all the awesome movies and body of work you left behind. This movie buff truly appreciates all you've done!! Go get some rest, you've more than earned it, my friend :)
His movies always made me happy.Will be missed...
Thank you for all the wonderful films, Del. You made me, my friends, and family very happy.
I'm a 33 year old living in Oklahoma, and I just heard of Delbert "Del" Tenney's passing. First, I would like to say I'm a big fan. Horror Of Party Beach is a movie I watch at LEAST twice a month. I hope he & his family realize that he was very loved in my fandom family. Second, I want to offer my condolences to his family and friends. I can't comprehend what a huge loss this is to you, and I hope that knowing he was loved,and will be loved, for years to come will bring you some comfort. This world was blessed to have him in it. Thoughts and love to his friends and family.
I fondly remember working with Del at The Hartman Theatre during the early years of my theatrical career. Both he and Margot, through their endless thoughtfulness and deep concern, were a great influence in making my dreams as well as many other star struck novices a reality.
i remember the movie showing at the starlight....it was as if the whole town was there....rip delbert tenney......
For years your film "the Horror of Party Beach" has brought joy to three generations of our family.Henry and Ed Poltrack had bit parts. The comic book version was fun. Thank you.
Working with Del for 28 years through good and bad was an absolute pleasure for me and my wife, we spent a lots of good times together, he will be miss but his memory and smile will be in our hearts. my condolences to Margot and Family. Love you all Lucinda & Sam
I remember the night when we sat on a blanket at Shippan Drive-In waiting to see our uncles in the Horror of Party Beach. This movie has been a topic of conversation in our family for almost 50 years. We have collected the VHS tape, the DVD , Movie Posters, original artwork and the comic book. Thanks for happy memories.
Sorry to hear of Mr.Tenney's passing. Starlight Drive Inn was packed when Horror of Party Beach played! My condolences to the family.
The three years I worked for DEL he was like my farther I had lost years ago you will be missed one of a kind rip. I will keep praying for the family
My dad was one of the detectives in "The Horror of Party Beach". The experience brought continued joy to him throughout his life. n his later years he was applauded at a Halloween showing at the Rich Theater when my brother in law announced to the theatergoers that Dad was in the audience. My kids were surprised at MGM Hollywood Studios in Disneyworld at a drive in style restaurant when Grandpa's face appeared on the movie screen in front of us as we ate our meal. It was interesting to read in the obituary that Del was involved with Stalag 17. My dad played the part of Price in a local Stamford stage production. Dad and Del were also both pilots. May your family memories be as bright and positive as ours.
Working with Del in the family's many business interests for the last six years has been a pleasure exceeded only by the joy he brought to every one he met on each visit to the office as he "stayed in touch". I will miss his smiling face and his endless thoughtfulness and deep concern for the well being of everyone with whom he came in contact.
He was a wonderful brother to my father-in-law and a loving uncle to my husband. We loved him dearly and he will be forever remembered for his kindness and love to so many. We will always have fond memories of our Uncle Del. One of a kind, one forever in our hearts.
My father and uncle were in Del's "The Horror of Party Beach," and I can't begin to tell you the joy this bit of cult-classic screen-time gave to our entire family for generations. Starting right from all the cousins piling into the cars to go see its premiere at the Drive-in. RIP, Del. Your star will shine bright.
