Dorothy Ford (April 4, 1922 – October 15, 2010)[1] was an American actress and model active during the 1940s through 1960s.

She began her career as a model, largely due to her height of 6 feet 2 inches (188 cm) and a 38-26-38-and-a-half figure.[2] In 1944, she made her screen debut in Lady in the Dark. She continued her acting career, including roles in the Andy Hardy movie Love Laughs at Andy Hardy (1946) and in Abbott and Costello's Jack and the Beanstalk (1952), until 1966, when she put in her final (and uncredited) performance in British film The Wrong Box. She made 39 movies from 1943 to 1962.[3]
