~Dorothy Revier~

Born: April 18, 1904 in San Francisco, California, USA
Died: November 19, 1993 in Hollywood, California, USA
~Biography~
The daughter of a musician, Doris Velegra worked as a chorus girl and nightclub dancer before
making her film debut in 1921's Life's Greatest Question. The following year, she appeared as
Dorothy Revier in Broadway Madonna, directed by her first husband, Harry Revier. Never a major
star, Revier was a dependable, hardworking leading lady, averaging seven to ten movie appearances
per year during the silent era. Perhaps her most celebrated assignment was Milady de Winter in
Douglas Fairbanks' The Iron Mask (1929), one of her many "vamp" or evil-seductress roles. Making a
successful transition to talkies, Revier kept busy at Fox and Universal, continuing in the
femme-fatale mode that had earned her fame. By the mid-'30s, she was consigned almost exclusively
to B-pictures, earning the far-from-coveted soubriquet "Queen of Poverty Row." After finishing her
duties on a 1936 Buck Jones Western, Dorothy Revier retired from films.
