Dorothy Morris

Actress

Born - 23 February 1922, Los Angeles. California, USA
Died - 20 November 2011

Light-haired, fresh-looking actress, mainly in demure roles, but notable for her portrait of the disturbed Ingeborg in Our Vines Have Tender Grapes (1945). MGM signed her up at 19, but never made the most of her delicate talents. After a debut in Her First Beau (1941), she was kept mainly in supporting roles: Down in San Diego (1941), This Time for Keeps (1942), We Were Dancing (1942), Seven Sweethearts (1942), Someone to Remember (1943), Cry Havoc (1943), The Human Comedy (1943), None Shall Escape (1944), Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1944), Rationing (1944), Main Street After Dark (1945), Club Havana (1945) and Baxter's Millions (1946). MGM let her go, and she was seen mainly on TV in subsequent years, her only remaining films being Macabre (1958) and Seconds (1966). She retired in 1972. Her older sister is the actress/dancer Caren Marsh.
