Dolly Molloy
Main page / Bibliography / Who is who / Dolly Molloy

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.
