Remembering Dorothy Malone 1924 - 2018



Actress Dorothy Malone, who died Friday at age 93, won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for the 1956 drama, Written on the Wind. Other film credits include Night and Day (1946), The Big Sleep (1946), Scared Stiff (1953), Young at Heart (1954), Battle Cry (1955), The Fast and the Furious (1955), Sincerely Yours (1955), Artists and Models (1955), Man of a Thousand Faces (1957), Tip on a Dead Jockey (1957), The Tarnished Angels (1957), Too Much, Too Soon (1958), Beach Party (1963), Winter Kills (1979) and Basic Instinct (1992).

Malone also received two Golden Globe nominations for Best Female TV Star for her performance as Constance MacKenzie in the ABC prime time soap opera, Peyton Place (1964-68). She later reprised her role in the NBC movies, Murder in Peyton Place (1977) and Peyton Place: The Next Generation (1985). Other television credits include the 1976 ABC miniseries, Rich Man, Poor Man, and the 1978 Canadian soap opera, High Hopes. She was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960.

Nice tribute. Hers is one of my favorite Best Supporting Actress wins. She has so much fun with Marylee and so the audience does too.

I've seen all but one of her films where she has a credited role (her very first "Too Young to Know") and she was an actress of the old highly emotive school but often found great depth in her characters. One of her best less heralded turns is in "The Tarnished Angels" but then that film is strangely less venerated than other Sirks from the same period. Perhaps it's the absence of color.

I was sorry to hear that she'd been ill for some time but she seemed to have a pretty happy life overall.
