Marie Dressler featured in the Google Doodle
Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the 152nd birthday of Oscar-winning Canadian-born actress, comedian, and singer Marie Dressler, who is widely considered one of the most significant actors of early-1930s film. With her signature style of raucous slapstick humour, Dressler challenged stereotypes to become one of Hollywood’s most unconventional stars.
Marie Dressler was born Leila Marie Koerber on this day in 1868 in Cobourg, Ontario. She began acting with stock companies by the age of 14. Over the following years, Dressler showcased her comedic chops in vaudeville, burlesque, and revue performances and ascended from local theater all the way to Broadway musicals.
