Biography

San Francisco, California, USA
Silent screen vamp Dorothy Revier (nee Velegra) was born in San Francisco, California on April 18, 1904, the daughter of a musician. As a result, Dorothy found herself leaning towards a career in music, finding work as a chorine and nightclub dancer in her teens. She broke into films at age 17 with Life's Greatest Question (1921), billed then as Doris Velegra. The film's storyline was written by first husband Harry Revier, a sometime director and producer. He also directed Dorothy in her next film The Broadway Madonna (1922), wherein she changed her stage moniker to reflect her married status. Read more...
