Doraldina from Who's Who on the Screen.jpg

Doraldina, (1888–1936) was an American dancer and one of the Metro stars. Though given a splendid opportunity to display her histrionic talents as an actress, would, nevertheless, retain in her pictures the familiar Hawaiian setting with which her legion of admirers have come to associate her. Beginning her career as a manicurist in a San Francisco hotel, Doraldina's rise to fame and stardom came as a fitting climax to a career during which she put forth every effort to please a discriminating public. Studying the dancing art first in New York, and then in Barcelona, Spain, she returned to New York where her career an dancer, actress, and screen star made of her a national figure. Her first Metro production was "Passion Fruit."[1]
