Dorothy Gulliver

Dorothy Kathleen Gulliver (September 6, 1908 – May 23, 1997) was an early silent film star, and one of the few to make a successful transition with the advent of “talkies”, when films began using sound. Dorothy Gulliver was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. Named as a 1928 “WAMPAS Baby Star”, Gulliver was part of The Collegians silent series of the late 1920s, and also did some silent serials with William Desmond, Jack Hoxie and Hoot Gibson. With the beginning of “talkies”, Dorothy Gulliver became a popular heroine in 1930s “cliffhangers”, including The Galloping Ghost, Phantom of the West, The Shadow of the Eagle, The Last Frontier, and the 1936 Custer’s Last Stand. Gulliver’s costars were often Rex Lease, Tim McCoy, Jack Hoxie, and Bill Elliott. “Baby Star” and “Gulliver” were part of The Collegians silent series of the late 1920s. Dorothy Gulliver also made some silent serials with William Desmond, Jack Hoxie and Hoot Gibson. While major roles died down and became uncredited, Gulliver made movies until 1976 and had a main role in Faces (1968). Dorothy Gulliver died in Valley Centre, California on May 23, 1997, aged 88.
