Biography

Dorathea "Dot" Farley (February 6, 1881 – May 2, 1971) was an American film actress who appeared in 280 motion pictures between 1910 and 1950. She was also known as Dorothy Farley. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Farley was the daughter of Eugene Farley and actress Alma Streeter Farley. Her nickname originated when she sang and danced on stage billed as "Chicago's Little Dot" when she was three years old.Farley gained acting experience by working for six years in stock theater and made her film debut in 1910. Mainly known for her roles in short comedies, prolific with Mack Sennett in the silent days, she also appeared in Western films in the early 1910s. She was later notable as the mother-in-law of Edgar Kennedy in most of his series of short films at the RKO studios.

Farley was also a writer, with 260 of her stories having been produced by 1924.Farley died in South Pasadena, California.
