Profile Bio Text
Doris Dowling (15 May 1923, Detroit, Michigan – 18 June 2004, Los Angeles) was an American film actress. After her time as a chorus-girl on Broadway, Detroit-born Doris Dowling followed her elder sister Constance to Hollywood. Her first credited film role was that of Gloria, barfly and drinking companion to fellow alcoholic Ray Milland in the 1945 film The Lost Weekend. She followed up the Best Picture-winning film with the Oscar winning The Blue Dahlia, which starred Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake. However post-war work became more scarce and she emigrated to Italy to revive her career, as her sister had done.
In Italy, Dowling starred in several acclaimed films including Bitter Rice. She also appeared in Orson Welles`s European production of Othello in 1952, playing Bianca. Upon returning to the US, much of her work was in theatre and on television. She appeared in such television shows as Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Bonanza, Perry Mason, The Andy Griffith Show, and, late in her career, The Incredible Hulk, Kojak and finally, The Dukes of Hazzard in 1984. In 1973, Dowling shared an Outer Critics Circle award for her performance in a revival of The Women on Broadway.
Dowling was married three times. She was band leader Artie Shaw`s 7th wife, by whom she had a son, Jonathan, a tattoo artist who reportedly owned Manhattan`s oldest tattoo parlour until 2004. Her other husbands were Robert F. Blumofe (1956 - 1959) and Leonard B. Kaufman (1960 until her death in 2004).
