Edna is my favorite part of "Drums Along the Mohawk". That's probably why you put her first.

Hi Michaele,

I knew that, that was exactly the reason I put her first. Did you ever see her with James Gleason in Penguin Pool Murder, Murder on a Honeymoon, or Murder on the Blackboard? I think they made a pretty good comedy team. She also did a good job giving Bert Wheeler the business in Cracked Nuts. I think I can say I liked her in everything Ive ever seen her in.

I've only heard of Marie Dressler really recently, but I became a fan. That "Reducing" movie looks just like the sort of thing she'd be great in, I hope I get to see it someday. I wouldn't mind watching all the movies she's ever been in.

She was almost ready to chuck it all until her role in the Patsy gave her career a much needed boost, and the rest, as they say, is history.
