  • After playing minor roles opposite Henry Fonda in both Young Mr. Lincoln (1939) and Drums Along the Mohawk, blonde, hazel-eyed Dorris Bowdon was awarded the choice role of Rosasharn, again opposite Fonda, in John Ford's evocative The Grapes of Wrath (1940). It was by no means a major role but she earned fine reviews and should have gone on to bigger and better things. Instead, she became the third wife of screenwriter Nunnally Johnson and retired. Bowdon was the grandmother of late-'90s child star Jack Johnson.
