Dorothy Fay

Birthday: Apr 4, 1915
Birthplace: Not Available
A graduate of famed Hollywood High School, Dorothy Fay (born Dorothy Fay Southworth) later studied drama at London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Her 1938-1941 screen career proved unremarkable, if busy, and included no less than ten B-Westerns and two chapter serials. Of her Westerns, the most important by far were the four she did opposite singing cowboy Tex Ritter at Monogram; not because the Ritter oaters were much to write home about -- in technical prowess, if not in music content, they ranked far below the competing Gene Autry and Roy Rogers Westerns at rival Republic -- but because she married the country & western singer on June 14, 1941. After that, she fulfilled a contract for a 15-chapter serial with Buck Jones -- White Eagle (1941) -- then retired to raise her two sons, Tom and John, with Ritter. The latter, of course, later became the star of the hit television comedy Three's Company.
