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).

Vintage FIlm Festival

Our largest activity has been the Vintage Film Festival which is held on a weekend in October every year. 

But in 2018 we had additional major events to celebrate Marie's 150th birthday.

Bursaries

Another major activity of the Foundation is to award scholarships/bursaries to students planning to pursue an education in the arts field. There is a list of previous scholarship winners here. The 2019 winners were presented with their awards at Dressler House on July 6  - see the story with photos hereFor more information on how to apply, go here.
