From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dorothy Coburn (June 8, 1904 - May 15, 1978) was a dark-haired actress, who appeared in a number of the early Laurel and Hardy silents. She was niece of author Walt Coburn, and granddaughter of Robert Coburn Sr., founder of the famous Circle C Ranch in Montana.

Raised in Prescott, Arizona, Coburn was born to cowboy-poet and Western film Producer Wallace, and Ann Reifenrath Coburn in Great Falls, Montana. Her documented film repertoire consisted of sixteen silent short subjects for the Hal Roach studios, but she was also in scores of films where she acted as horseback-stuntwoman opposite such stars as Gary Cooper and Joel McCrea; and as a stand-in for Ginger Rogers in several of her dancing films with Fred Astaire. Coburn retired from the movie business in the early-1930s. She was buried in Glendale, California's Grand View Memorial Park Cemetery.
