Classic Movie Legend Tribute: Dorothy McGuire


Happy Birthday to Classic Movie Legend, Dorothy McGuire, born June, 14, 1916!

The virtue of humility; that’s what comes to mind when I think of Dorothy McGuire. Her charm did not derive from her looks, though if you think she’s ugly I can’t help but question your taste. Her fearless and bold choice to portray, what we shall call unglamorous roles, in an era where glamour reigned supreme is something I’ve always admired so very much about her. So, let us take the time to look at some of her iconic roles to celebrate the day of her birth. Leave the glamour at the door, please and thank you!
