Marie Dressler Academy Award Winner

Photo Details

Marie Dressler, a Canadian American Academy Award winning actress with a lamp shade style hat on her head. It's such a funny picture!!

Marie was a star in vaudeville, stage, silent films, and "talkies". Her full figure was in vogue and while she wasn't a beauty, her figure and wise-cracking ways (as well as talent) took her a long way. She was also something of a free spirit, as seen from this photo. (Which wasn't for a character she was playing, this was just her!)
