Dorothy Dare
Birth: Aug. 6, 1911
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Oct. 4, 1981
Orange County
California, USA

Actress, Singer. Signed by Warner Brothers in 1934, Dare, whose last name was changed from Herskind, initially appeared in several Vitagraph Shorts before moving on to supporting roles in such films as "Happiness Ahead" (1934), "The Saint Louis Kid" (1934), "Maybe It's Love" (1935), "Gold Diggers of 1935" (1935) and "Front Page Woman" (1935). However just as her career appeared to be ascending, in 1937 she left Warners. Freelancing, she appeared in two productions filmed in the United Kingdom, "Clothes for the Woman" and "Rose of Tralee" which was shot in Ireland. Upon returning to the US, she continued to freelance, starring in "High Hat" (1937). Growing disinterested with acting, Dare retired in 1937 and with a brief return in 1942's "The Yanks Are Coming", Dare's film career came to an end. Eventually moving to Orange County, California, she spent the remainder of her life happily married.  (bio by: Melissa)
