Polly Moran (June 28, 1883 - January 25, 1952) was an American actor and comedian.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Polly started out in vaudeville, and toured all over the world including Europe and South Africa. She left vaudeville in 1914 after signing for Mack Sennett at Keystone Studios. She proved effective at slapstick and remained with Sennett for several years until she was signed by MGM. She partnered with the famous Broadway star Marie Dressler in The Callahans and the Murphys (1927), and the two went on to appear in several films together such as Chasing Rainbows (1930) and Caught Short (1930). After Dressler's death in 1934 Paula's career declined, and she only starred in low budget comedies or B-movies, though she still maintained an active Hollywood social life, throwing large and well-publicized parties.
Paula made a comeback after starring in Adam's Rib (1949). Unfortunately this resurgence was cut short when she died of heart problems in 1952.
She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6300 Hollywood Boulevard.
