The Marie Dressler Story

Born in Cobourg, Canada - one of Hollywood's greatest stars

The Dressler Story: to Dream, to Dare, to Persist, to Win

Cobourg is the birthplace of Marie Dressler - one of the greatest comediennes of her generation and one of Hollywood's best loved stars.

This is the official site of the Marie Dressler Foundation whose mission is to make sure that Marie Dressler is remembered. The Foundation, a registered charity, was created to raise money to restore her house when it was burnt down in 1989 (More here).
