Dorothy Vernon

Born: 11 November 1875, Germany
Died: 28 October 1970, Granada Hills, California, USA
Dorothy Vernon was a stage actress who appeared on Broadway five times between 1911 and 1937 and who entered films during the silent era and went on to make over 200 appearances, usually in walk-on roles or small speaking parts. Not to be confused with the British actress of the same name and the same era.
