DIBBLE, Dorothy (aka Doris Deane). (La Crosse, WI January 20, 1900--Hollywood, CA, Mar. 24, 1974). Dibble, the daughter of C. R. Dibble and his wife, attended PRESCOTT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL before her family moved to California. Her parents attempted to discourage her from pursuing a career in MOTION PICTURES by sending her to the exclusive Orton Sisters' school in Pasadena.

Their efforts were not successful and after graduation she traveled to New York City to earn a living as a screen star. She took one year's instruction from the Morton Sisters, practitioners of esthetic dancing, and then looked for directors who would give her dancing roles in films.

She returned to Pasadena and played opposite Frank Mayo in several films. She also appeared in a serial with Eddie Polo in comedy. She also appeared in: (1)
