I did an online search recently to see if there were any high-resolution images of writer Dorothy B. Hughes (1904–1993). She wrote a lot of great crime and suspense novels, some of which were turned into classic noir films. One of my all-time favorites is In a Lonely Place, the 1950 film directed by Nicholas Ray and starring Humphrey Bogart. And there’s also, Ride the Pink Horse from 1947, which featured Robert Montgomery as both star and director.
Although she had a lot of fame and notoriety, there is currently no biography on Dorothy B. Hughes. And if you do a search for images of her online, all you will find are low-resolution, low-quality images.
So I went and tracked down an original photograph of Dorothy B. Hughes, scanned it, cleaned it up in Photshop, and present it for you here. Enjoy.
