American stage actress Dorothy Stickney attended Northwestern University, and upon graduation in 1921 studied acting for two years with Christine Brooks. Stickney made her Broadway bow in the 1926 play The Squall, and thereafter made at least one starring appearance per year. She seemed most comfortable in roles calling for brassy exuberance, though it took quite a while for director George S. Kaufman to get Stickney to say her entrance line -- "I've been looking for you bastards" -- in the original 1928 production of The Front Page. Married from 1927 to producer/playwright Howard Lindsay, Stickney appeared with her husband as Vinnie and Clarence Day in the 1939 Broadway classic Life With Father, which ended up the longest-running stage comedy in history. In 1948, Stickney re-created her role for a less lengthy but successful sequel, Life with Mother. Dorothy Stickney made a handful of film appearances: her best remembered were in 1934's Murder at the Vanities, as the deceptively meek maid of the villainess/murder victim, and in the 1943 ghost story The Uninvited. Stickney passed away at age 101 on June 2, 1998.
