Minta Durfee was a popular silent comedian who appeared in some of Chaplin's early films. She also appeared in films of her husband Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, whom she married in 1908 and who helped launch her career in 1913 when she began working at Keystone Studios. Durfee and Arbuckle separated in 1918 and she left films. By 1925, they divorced and she did not return full time to films. She did however, occasionally make cameo appearances or play bit parts through the mid-1960s.
