Early years

Christy was born Dorothea J. Seltzer[4] on May 26, 1906,[citation needed] in Reading, Pennsylvania.[5] She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John C. Seltzer. Although she sometimes participated in amateur plays, she had no plans for an acting career.[6] After attended public schools in Reading, she went to Beachwood (a finishing school near Philadelphia) and then to Dana Hall School near Boston. She went on to study opera.[3]


On Broadway, Christy was a member of the ensemble of The New Moon (1928) and portrayed Olive in Follow Thru (1929).[7]

Christy acted with Will Rogers, Buster Keaton and the Marx Brothers (appearing in the pre-filming stage version of A Night at the Opera) and with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in the film Sons of the Desert (1933), in the role of Mrs. Laurel. She was Queen Tika of Murania in The Phantom Empire, Gene Autry’s 1935 cliffhanger serial.[8] She concluded her cinema career in 1953.

Personal life and death

On January 2, 1936, Christy was divorced from songwriter Hal Christy.[4]

Christy died of natural causes five days shy of her 71st birthday.[citation needed]
