The details (from wikipedia)


Dorothy Kathleen Gulliver (September 6, 1908 – May 23, 1997) was a silent film star, and one of the few to make a successful transition with the advent of "talkies", when films began using sound. She was born in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Named as a 1928 "WAMPAS Baby Star", Gulliver was part of The Collegians silent series of the late 1920s, and also did some silent serials with William Desmond, Jack Hoxie and Hoot Gibson. With the beginning of "talkies", she became a popular heroine in 1930s "cliffhangers", including The Galloping Ghost, Phantom of the West, The Shadow of the Eagle, The Last Frontier, and the 1936 Custer's Last Stand. Her costars were often Rex Lease, Tim McCoy, Jack Hoxie, and Bill Elliott.
While major roles died down and became uncredited, she made movies until 1976 and had a main role in Faces (1968). She died in Valley Centre, California on May 23, 1997, aged 88.
