Biography

She was billing herself under her given name of Dorothy Davis when she made a name for herself as the "Chesterfield Girl." The well-proportioned young photographer's model won a Gateway to Hollywood contest in 1939, but opted instead for a marriage to star hockey player Lynn Patrick. When she finally did begin making films in 1946, the blonde beauty had changed her professional and personal name to Dorothy Patrick. After a brief flurry of stardom in such Republic programmers as Blonde Bandit (1949) and Destination Big House (1950), Dorothy Patrick settled into decorative walk-on roles in major releases like The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) and Singin' in the Rain (1952), before retiring in the late '50s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
