The Art of the Dangle 27: Dorothy Dell

After winning the Miss New Orleans contest in 1930, at age 15, Dorothy Dell joined the Ziegfield Follies of 1931. She made four films for Paramount, all released in 1934. Tragically, her promising future was cut short by her death in a car accident in June of that year. She was only 19 at the time of her death.
