Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role 1957
Plays Three Character That Is Related To The Sex Trade Industry
Lilly Dollar in Warlock 1959
Madame Hilary LaSalle in Police Woman 1976
Maggie in Little Ladies Of The Night 1977
The first character is a prostitute; the second character is a madam; the third character is an ex-hooker.
If there ever were a name that fits the profession of a character, it would be Lilly Dollar from the movie “Warlock.” Dorothy Malone plays this part, two years after winning her Oscar for the film “Written on the Wind.” Though not said in so many words, it’s implied Lilly was a prostitute. She could still be turning tricks, as that possibility is left open. Nevertheless, Lilly arrives in the town of Warlock with one goal in mind. Revenge.

Years after appearing on the TV series “Peyton Place,” Dorothy began popping up on TV and doing various TV movies and guest roles. One of which was “Police Woman,” where Dorothy played a successful Madam by the name of Hilary LaSalle. In her possession is The Trick Book, where she keeps a detailed list of all her clients. Naturally, many of her clients want to shut her up; her character gets murdered. Real whodunit.
In “Little Ladies of the Night,” Dorothy has a cameo where she doesn’t have much to do. But it is quite an acting role nonetheless. She plays Maggie, who runs a coffee shop on Hollywood Boulevard. She is also an ex-hooker, where it’s implied she aged out of business.
