Saturday November 9, 2019 was Marie Dressler’s 151st birthday and we celebrated it.  After an introduction by Town Crier Mandy Robinson, foundation chair Rick Miller presented the documentary Without Lying Down which is about women in early Hollywood who were very successful. The film focused particularly on screenwriter Frances Marion and her close friend Mary Pickford. Rick then briefly spoke about the Foundation’s plans to expand the existing Marie Dressler museum to include female Canadian stars Mary Pickford and Norma Shearer.  He also called on Mayor John Henderson to draw the ticket for the winner of the first of three door prizes.  After the event, the good-sized audience in the Citizen’s Forum in Victoria Hall were invited to enjoy the refreshments.

Below are some photos of the event.  Click any photo to enlarge then scroll through all of them.
