Dolly Molloy, nee Dora Gunn, known early in her career as
Fainting Dolly because she would swoon in the arms of
rich-looking strangers and pick their pockets when they stooped
to render assistance. Confederate-wife to Soapy in
Sam the Sudden,
Money For Nothing,
Money in the Bank,
Ice in the Bedroom,
Pearls, Girls and Monty Bodkin.
A young woman of stylish
appearance and a certain rather bold and challenging beauty;
brassy golden hair and beautiful but intimidating hazel eyes,
not the sort that go with a meek and contrite heart. A shop-lifter
of unique gifts. Just married to Soapy in Sam the Sudden.
In Money in the Bank
she knocks out Jeff Miller with a stone tobacco-jar, resulting
in his engagement to Anne Benedick. Shortly before the
action of Ice in the Bedroom she has been serving a sentence in Holloway
gaol for shoplifting.
