Marie Dressler

Marie Dressler, as Carlotta Vance, gives what may be the greatest doubletake in the history of American cinema.

Dinner at Eight (1933) was based on a Broadway play by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber, adapted by Frances Marion and Herman J. Mankiewicz, produced by David O. Selznick and directed by George Cukor.

Dressler was a founding member of the Actors Equity Association, and she’s a lead character in my screenplay, Equity, in which both Lionel and John Barrymore also make appearances.
