      Dorothy Gish

      Highest Rated: 95% Hearts of the World (1918)

      Birthday: Mar 11, 1898

      Birthplace: Massillon, Ohio, USA

      Though not as popular or successful as her older sister, actress Dorothy Gish nonetheless enjoyed a good run in the silent era as a pert and talented leading lady who seemed most at home in comedy. Gish made a number of pictures with her sister and director D.W. Griffith, starting with "An Unseen Enemy" (1912), before having her big breakthrough role in the World War I epic, "Hearts of the World" (1918). After signing a contract with Paramount Pictures that same year, Gish starred in a string of successful films that made her one of the top comic performers in Hollywood. She made her last film with her sister and Griffith in the epic "Orphans of the Storm" (1922), and moved to England in the mid-1920s to make her final silent-era films, including the international hit "Nell Gywnn" (1926). Gish made the transition to talkies with "Wolves" (1930), but stepped away from movies for 14 years to perform on the stage. She returned to pictures as a character actress in "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay" (1944) and "Centennial Summer" (1946), and made her last movie "The Cardinal" (1963), before succumbing to ill health. Though overshadowed by her sister, Gish was certainly remembered as a popular star in her own right.
