Her real name was Marjorie Elizabeth Millsap , and she was born in Los Angeles, California. In 1929, after graduating from high school, she began to look for work as an actress, getting her first performances in theater in New York.

She came back when Selznick’s successor, Mark Sandrich, chose her to act in two titles in 1934, both with a good reception. RKO later replaced her with Mary Carlisle and, later, with Betty Grable, but she returned in 1935 for two last performances.

Dorothy Lee got married six times, one of them with Hollywood society chronicler Jimmy Fidler. With her fifth husband she had four children. Lee died in 1999 in San Diego (California), due to respiratory failure. He was 88 years old. She was buried in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Long Beach, California.
