Dora Bryan - Rotten Tomatoes

Dora Bryan

Highest Rated:   100% The Fallen Idol (1949)
Lowest Rated:   54% MirrorMask (2005)
Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Southport, Lancashire, UK
Though born in Southport, Dora Bryan convincingly portrayed many a Cockney and Northerner in her long British film career. In films from 1947, Bryan was more often than not cast as good-natured tarts and garrulous neighbors, her nasal line delivery adding credibility to her characterizations. Many feel that she delivered her best performance in the 1962 slice-of-life drama A Taste of Honey. Her prolific TV work has included the popular 1994 situation comedy Mother's Ruin. In 1987, Dora Bryan came out with her autobiography, According to Dora.
