Dorothy Dell Career

Early life and career

Dorothy Dell Goff, a native of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, was born to entertainers and moved with the family to New Orleans, Louisiana, at the age 13. She was born into a wealthy family, and her mother was a descendant of Jefferson Davis. She was first aspiring to be a singer and was soon signed to a radio contract. She began competing beauty pageants and then became a teenager and received the coveted title of "Miss New Orleans" in 1930. Miss Universe was established in 1952, and she competed in the International Pageant of Pulchritude in Galveston, Texas, winning the title of Miss Universe (not to be confused with the later Miss Universe, which was established in 1952). She created a fruitful vaping act with this success. Despite receiving better offers, she decided to enter the vaindeville circuit because she felt it would help her friend Dorothy Lamour rise to fame, a promise she made shortly after winning the Miss Universe competition at the Pageant.

She migrated to New York in 1931 after 32 weeks on the vainville circuit. Florenz Ziegfeld, who arranged for her appearance in the Ziegfeld Follies, discovered her one night at a benefit and was rewarded, and she continued her triumph with her role in the 1933 production of Tattle Tales. During this period, she was closely associated with Russ Colombo, and her celebrity was boosted by the media coverage she received when denied rumors of an imminent marriage. Dell and Columbo met at their Ziegfeld audition; Columbo's boss, Con Conrad, was determined to end their relationship and did so with a string of "publicity only" romances between Columbo and other, more well-known actresses.

She moved to Hollywood in 1933 and Paramount Pictures had agreed to a deal. She was first hired for bit parts and landed her first film role over Mae Clarke and Isabel Jewell, making her debut in Wharf Angel (1934).
