Primarily a stage actress -- she starred in the London production of Irving Berlin's Annie Get Your Gun -- blonde, long-limbed Dolores Gray enjoyed a brief flurry of film activity. Though she made a brace of cameo appearances in Lady for a Night (1941) and Mr. Skeffington (1944), she began her movie career proper as Gene Kelly's vis-à-vis in MGM's It's Always Fair Weather (1955). She went on to play the alluring Lalume in Kismet (1955), the gossipy Sylvia in The Opposite Sex (the 1956 musical remake of The Women), and the TV star, ex-flame of sportswriter Gregory Peck in Designing Women (1957). When MGM briefly decided to abandon big-budget musicals in 1957, Dolores Gray bade farewell to films, successfully returning to the Broadway and London stage.
