Dorothea Kent Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jun 6, 1916
  • Died: Dec 10, 1990

A model prior to her screen debut in 1934, minor-league dumb blonde comedienne Dorothea Kent usually turned up as the star's squeaky-voiced girlfriend. But unlike the better remembered Marie Wilson or Joyce Compton, Kent was mainly relegated to programmers, often of the poverty row variety. In 1936, she enjoyed a rare starring role -- as an heiress, no less -- in Carnival Queen, a Universal potboiler with [[Performer~P76208~Robert Wilcox~robertwilcox]], but her dumb blonde looks worked against her and she almost immediately returned to supporting roles. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
