MINI BIO:

Dorothy McGuire appeared in many gentle, often downtrodden, roles and was skillful at manipulating her audience's emotions. She made fewer films as a star than most people think, and moved too swiftly (in 1956) into 'mother' roles, her film career lasting only a few more years. She is the mother of actress Topo Swope.

Dorothy McGuire Quotes:

Margaret Carey: Your father loved you and wanted the best for you. It was his dream to live in the country someday. So maybe, maybe he'd be happy to know that we were all together in the yellow house in Beulah.


Father Robinson: What did I tell you? Anything we need, the island will produce it for us, even a girl.
Mother Robinson: *A* girl. But we have three sons.


Kathy Lacey: I was right not to settle. I was right to keep dreaming, because it's all come true. Darling, we're going to be so happy here. This house and I were waiting for you. I was always waiting for you, I think.
