Born 1924 in Chicago, Illinois, American actress Dorothy Malone began her film career  in 1943, and in her early years, she played small roles, mainly in B-movies, but an exception is The Big Sleep (1946).

After a decade, she changed her image, particularly after her role in Written on the Wind (1956), for which she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Her career reached its peak by the beginning of the 1960s, and she achieved later success with her television role as Constance MacKenzie on Peyton Place (1964–1968). Less active in her later years, Malone’s last screen appearance was in Basic Instinct in 1992.

Malone has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1718 Vine in the Motion Pictures section. It was dedicated February 8, 1960. She died in 2018 at the age of 93. She had been one of the last surviving stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
