Brunette, curvaceous Dorothy Coburn was the daughter of western actor/producer Wallace Coburn. She appeared in silent comedy shorts for Hal Roach, often as the quintessential flapper, society lady or nurse. Her most notable pairing was with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Her best-known appearances with the famous duo include The Second 100 Years (1927) (with Stan, in a famous scene, covering her bottom with white paint); Putting Pants on Philip (1927) (in which she is being chased by an overly-amorous, kilt-wearing Stan Laurel around town); and as a dentist's nurse in Leave 'Em Laughing (1928).
