Known as The Caviar of Poverty Row, brunette Dorothy Revier was Columbia Pictures' first female star. In Beware of Blondes, a lurid melodrama typical of the studio at this early stage, Revier played a girl falsely suspected of being Blonde Mary, a notorious thief. In reality, she is a detective on her way to Honolulu to bring the real Blonde Mary (Hazel Howell) to justice. Matt Moore, formerly Mr. Mary Pickford, co-starred as a jewelry store clerk who at first suspects Revier of being a criminal, then grows to love her. A WAMPAS Baby Star of 1925, Dorothy Revier is best remembered for playing Milady de Winter in Douglas Fairbanks' The Iron Mask (1929), and for her on-again, off-again relationship with Columbia chief Harry Cohn.
