Biography[]

Ann Doran was an American actress who appeared in more than two-hundred films since the 1930s and served as a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) national officer and board member.

Born in Amarillo, Texas, to an actress mother and Army father, Doran began acting at age four. To spare her family embarrassment, she performed in hundreds of silent films under an assumed name.

Although she shared the lead in "Rio Grande" (1939), she made her mark as a supporting actress. Her film credits include "The High and the Mighty", "Stella Dallas" and "Rebel Without a Cause", in which she portrayed James Dean’s mother. Her television career included appearances on series such as "Bewitched", "Highway to Heaven" and "Hunter".

Doran served on the boards of the Actors Fund, Theater Authority, Permanent Charities and the Motion Picture and Television Fund. In 1964, she began a thirty-year tenure on the SAG Pension and Health Board of Trustees. Her service to SAG also extended to education. In 1973 the actress helped establish the John L. Dales Scholarship Fund, which bestows financial aid to college students. As a result of her work with SAG, Doran was honored with the Guild’s Hollywood Branch Ralph Morgan Award in 1990.

She died on September 19, 2000 following a series of strokes. She was 89.[2]
