Dorothy Appleby - YOUNG SINNERS Flyer 1929


Dorothy Appleby is best remembered for appearing in comedy films with the Three Stooges, Buster Keaton, and Charley Chase, but her career began on stage and she was a star on Broadway, appearing in YOUNG SINNERS for several years. YOUNG SINNERS was the sort of story that would be associated with Clara Bow today, with Dorothy Appleby playing a flapper in a tale of flaming youth.
