3.  Makes a brief memorable appearance in The Big Sleep as the "Acme Book Shop Proprietress."  She and Bogart have great chemistry in that scene.  

It was another Dorothy, Dorothy Malone but they shared something: Dorothy McGuire In April of 2002, Dorothy's family was hurt and disappointed after Dorothy's name was unwittingly omitted by the Motion Picture Academy from the "In Memoriam" tribute of the March 2002 telecast. The demure, classy Dorothy, who had died within the calendar year and was nominated once for an Oscar for Gentleman's Agreement(1947), was one of those talented stars who avoided the sensationalism of stardom. The Academy explained that it was NOT an oversight or a slight, but that they have room only for 15-20 names in a single tribute. However, left unexplained was why they managed to include lesser film personalities such as Aalyah

Dorothy Malone:  Passed away on January 19th 2018, but was not remembered in the 90th Academy Awards In Memoriam segment, despite being a Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner.

Yep, I was thinking of Dorothy Malone for some reason.  I can change it.  Sorry about that.

4.  Kerr was cast against type in "From Here to Eternity" as the adulterous army wife who has an affair with Burt Lancaster.   This role broke her away from proper ladylike roles and let audiences see her in a sexier light.
