Dorothy Tree Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: May 21, 1909
  • Died: Feb 12, 1992

Never a Hollywood glamour girl, brunette Brooklynite Dorothy Tree was a versatile general purpose actress, playing everything from a middle-class housewife to a Nazi spy. After graduating from Cornell and working extensively on Broadway, Tree came to Hollywood for a part in the Fox musical comedy [[Feature~V97472~Just Imagine~justimagine]] (1930). She remained in films for the next twenty years, appearing in such roles as Elizabeth Edwards in [[Feature~V600~Abe Lincoln in Illinois~abelincolninillinois]] (1940) and Teresa Wright's mother in The Men (1950) (Marlon Brando's first film). Given her expertise at dialects and subtleties of intonations, it isn't surprising that Dorothy Tree later became a top vocal coach, writing a public-speaking guide titled A Woman's Voice. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
