Biography by AllMovie

Mainly known as a stage actress, blonde Doris Nolan played Katharine Hepburn's elegant sister in the second screen version of Philip Barry's Holiday (1938). She was quite effective in the role but Hepburn took no prisoners and screen stardom was not to be. After a few less memorable attempts, Nolan returned to Broadway where she would spend two years in the hit wartime comedy The Doughgirls. She married Canadian actor Alexander Knox and together they resettled in Great Britain when he got in trouble with the House Un-American Activities Committee.
