When I saw the name Marie Dressler on the list, I flipped.
I love me some Marie Dressler. Especially in Dinner at Eight.
So, I of course put her down as one of my "Five Famous People." Only she wasn't born on my birthday. She was born on November 9th, 1868.
I should have known the list I read was wrong when it claimed that Marie was born in 1907. Because, if that were true, she would have been 25 years old in 1933, the year Dinner at Eight was released.
And as you can see from this clip (where Ms. Dressler delivers the funniest last line of any movie that has ever been made), Marie is far from 25...
