These are very special pictures and I am very happy to make them available to you. They were taken by Jim Ferguson in 1980 who at the time was the west coast editor of Fantastic Films magazine. They are totally candid and have never been displayed before. Jim was kind enough to allow me to obtain copies of them for this site. Thank you Jim.
Jim also offered this comment about his experience of Dorothy.
"Dorothy was the sweetest person I've ever met. Soft spoken, gentle and very shy. You could tell she was nervous with her first starring film. Like she was wondering how she deserved this honor, could she do the job as an actress. She had very small hands and a soft grip. She was professional though. She knew how to stand and position herself for the photos like someone who had been doing it all her life."
