45 Beautiful Photos of Dorothy Sebastian in the 1920s and ’30s

Born 1903 as Stella Dorothy Sabiston in Birmingham, Alabama, American actress Dorothy Sebastian performed in George White's Scandals and later co-starred with Joan Crawford and Anita Page in a popular series of MGM romantic dramas including Our Dancing Daughters (1928) and Our Blushing Brides (1930). She also appeared in 1929's Spite Marriage, where she was cast opposite her then-lover Buster Keaton.

By the mid-1930s, Sebastian was semi-retired from acting after marrying Hopalong Cassidy star William Boyd. After their 1936 divorce, she returned to acting appearing in mostly bit parts. Her last onscreen appearance was in the 1948 film The Miracle of the Bells.

Sebastian is credited with co-writing the Moon Mullican blues ballad “The Leaves Mustn't Fall”. Mullican recorded this in 1950 and 1958. And it has become a bluegrass standard.

Sebastian died of cancer in 1957 at the age of 53. For her contribution to the motion picture industry, Dorothy Sebastian has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6655 Hollywood Boulevard.
