[Marie Dressler: the unlikeliest star] - ProQuest
Article published October 17, ; Last Edited March 04, The Canadian Encyclopedia , s. Article by Paul Townend. Marie Dressler was known for her hearty laugh and robust voice. She played in productions organized to raise money for the women's suffrage movement. And during World War I she claimed she sold more liberty bonds than any other individual in the United States.
Dressler was an astute observer of public mood and taste. When she was lucky enough to find work in the newly minted Hollywood talkies, she grabbed the brass ring with fierce enthusiasm, even making three films in the year before her death, when she was so sick she had to rest between scenes on a sofa just out of camera range.
The two-hundred-pound actress's remarkable stage presence captivated audiences even though her roles were not Hollywood beauties. She played tough, practical characters such as the old wharf rat in Anna Christie , the waterfront innkeeper in Min and Bill -- for which she won the Academy Award for best actress -- the aging housekeeper in Emma , and the title role in Tugboat Annie She spoke honestly to her audiences, and troubled people in the comforting darkness of the Depression-era movie theaters embraced her as one of themselves.
