MARIE DRESSLER AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO


Marie Dressler was born November 9, 1868 – July 28, 1934.  Dressler was an Academy Award-winning Canadian actress. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1731 Vine Street. Each year the Marie Dressler Film Festival is held in her home town of Cobourg, Ontario. In 1919, during the Actors’ Equity strike in New York city, the Chorus Equity Association was formed and voted Dressler its first president. In 1927, Dressler was secretly blacklisted by the theater production companies due to her strong stance in a labor dispute. It would turn out to be another Canadian who gave her the opportunity to return to motion pictures, MGM studio boss Louis B. Mayer who called her “the most adored person ever to set foot in the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio.” In 1929, once again, Marie Dressler found herself out of work, so she joined Edward Everett Horton’s theater troup in L.A.. However, soon after this, Dressler yet again found herself in demand, due to the arrival of talkies and the need for stage trained performers. She the proceeded to leave Horton flat, much to his indignation. Original Marie Dressler Autographed 8 x 10 Photo. Hand written: For Frank Tricker Sincerely Marie Dressler.
