Before she established herself as a feisty movie ingenue, dark-haired Dorothy Jordan trained in ballet and studied acting at New York's American Academy of Dramatic Art. A veteran of Broadway musicals, Jordan came to Hollywood in 1929, securing such roles as Bianca in the Fairbanks/Pickford version of Taming of the Shrew (1929) and the daughter of Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery in Min and Bill (1930). From 1932 onward, Jordan's film assignments became increasingly humdrum, prompting her to retire from moviemaking when she married producer Merian C. Cooper. At the request (and cajoling) of her husband and their mutual friend John Ford, Dorothy Jordan made a brief comeback in three Ford-directed films of the 1950s, The Sun Shines Bright (1953), The Searchers (1956) and The Wings of Eagles (1957).
