Doretta Morrow was born in 1927 in Brooklyn, New York. Her one major screen credit was as leading lasy to Mario Lanza in “Because Your Mine” in 1951. She had an extensive stage career in musicals and in concert before retiring from performing at the age of 33 in 1960. She lived for many years with her family in England and she died in London at the early age of 41 in 1968.
Although she made only one movie, Because You’re Mine (1952), opposite Mario Lanza, Doretta Morrow’s Broadway credits were impressive, including the original “Tuptim” in “The King and I” (1951) and “Marsinah” in “Kismet” (1953). Sadly, she re-created neither role for the screen. Retiring when she married, she died in London, of cancer, in 1968, just a month after her 41st birthday. Singer/actor Vic Damone was her cousin.
