Yet another stage star given short shrift by Hollywood, Minnie Dupree played only one memorable screen role: as the old lady who reforms an entire family of swindlers in The Young at Heart (1938). The sentimental comedy-drama starred Janet Gaynor, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., and Billie Burke, but according to the New York Times, "when Dupree is on the screen the rest are merely supernumeraries." With such praise it is regrettable that her only follow-up was to be a standard old lady role in Anne of Windy Poplars (1940). Having appeared opposite such theatrical legends as Richard Mansfield, Nat Goodwin, and William Gillette, Dupree was pronounced a star herself in The Road to Yesterday in 1906. Known for the lightness of her comedic style, she made her final stage appearance in Jed Harris' production of Dark Eyes in 1943.
