Louise Fazenda (June 17, 1895 - April 17, 1962) was an American film actor, appearing chiefly in silent film comedy films.
Fazenda got her start in comedy shorts as early as 1913 with Joker Studios, frequently appearing with Max Asher and Bobby Vernon. She was soon recruited for Mack Sennett's troupe at Keystone Studios.
As with many Keystone actors, Fazenda's star soon grew larger than Sennett was willing to pay for, and she left Sennett in the early 1920s for better roles and more money. Fazenda appeared in a variety of shorts and feature-length films throughout the decade. By the advent of sound pictures, Fazenda was a highly paid actress, making movies for nearly all of the big studious. Fazenda continued through the 1930s, appearing mostly in musicals and comedies.
In 1927 Fazenda married noted Warner Brothers' producer Hal B. Wallis, a union which lasted until her death. She is not known to have had any children.
Fazenda's last screen appearance came in 1939. She spent the remainder of her years enjoying life as an art collector until her death in 1962. She was interred at the Inglewood Park Cemetery in Inglewood, California.
