Did You Know?
[on why she survived the end of her stage career better than her sisters] I reached the age of 32 and I took a good look at myself and said, "What's going on here? This is nothing. This is not life". I went back to church and began to study and find myself. I got some inner strength from that.
Her first husband, stage producer Joe Gorham, who ran the Gorham Theatrical Enterprises of Chicago, featured Doris in his "Gorham Follies" in 1922. They married in January of 1923. The marriage was a brief, but very unhappy one. Her abusive husband died of a heart attack in October of the same year.
