Dorn was born in Scheveningen, The Hague, Netherlands in 1901 and made his stage début at age 14 in Dutch productions. By the 1930s, he was a popular matinée idol and was acting in films. From Germany, where he had worked with the likes of Veit Harlan, he moved to United States when World War II broke out and acted in a number of films, starting with Enemy Agent (1940). He was usually cast as Continental lovers, anti-Nazi Germans or refugees. In the 1950s, he returned to Europe and acted in German films.
