Dorothy Dalton
Date of Birth
Sep 22, 1893
Birth Place:
Chicago, IL


A pretty, dimpled brunette, Dorothy Dalton's film career lasted a mere decade, but her fan following endured long after she left the screen. A former stock company actress, she made her movie debut at the behest of producer Thomas Ince in 1914, brightening such forgettable features as Pierre of the Plains, The Captive God, and Moran of the Lady Letty. Previously wed to actor Lew Cody, Dalton retired from the screen in 1924 upon her marriage to theatrical producer Arthur Hammerstein. Despite the pleas of fans and producers, Dorothy Dalton remained retired, living the good life as a Scarsdale matron until her death at age 78. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
