Biography

From Wikipedia

Doris Hill (March 21, 1905 – March 3, 1976) was an American

film actress of the 1920s and 1930s, mostly in B movies.

Born and raised in Roswell, New Mexico, Hill moved to

Hollywood in the mid-1920s to pursue an acting career. First working as a

vaudeville dancer, she received her first film acting role in 1926 when she

starred alongside George O'Hara in Is That Nice?. She starred in seventeen

films from 1926 to 1929, and unlike many silent film stars, she made a

successful transition to talking films.

In 1929, along with future major Hollywood star Jean Arthur,

Hill was selected as one of thirteen girls to be WAMPAS Baby Stars. On contract

with Paramount Pictures, she starred in four films in 1930, most notably Sons

of the Saddle with popular western actor Ken Maynard. Western film roles became

her most common parts, with her often starring opposite Tom Tyler. In 1932, she

starred in another six films, four of which were westerns. In 1933, she starred

in four films, all westerns, and by 1934, her career had slowed to almost no

roles.

Her last acting role was in the 1934 western Ridin' Gents

opposite Jack Perrin and Ben Corbett. She retired and married actor George L.

Derrick, but they divorced shortly after. She then married Hollywood director,

producer and writer Monte Brice, and eventually moved to Kingman, Arizona. She

died there on March 3, 1976.
