Lamour, Dorothy

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

(b. 1914)

    Famed sarong girl of the Hope-Crosby movies, Lamour was a very popular film star of the 1940s. A canine version of Lamour in sarong is seen listening to Bing Crosby, then swooning over Frank Sinatra in Hollywood Canine Canteen (McKimson, 1946). One of the stars -- the only sarong-clad one -- that Daffy sees after getting clouted on the head by a studio cop in Hollywood Daffy (Freleng, 1946) is Lamour. Cecil Crow, in Aloha Hooey (Avery/Clampett, 1942) mentions “Dorothy Lammer” as one of the reasons he wants to see the South Seas.
