Modern viewers will recognize Slater for her roles in two Three Stooges films from the 1940s. She was the rumba dancing partner of Curly Howard in Three Smart Saps. Standing nearly six feet tall, Slater towers over the short Stooge, and then manages to tear off his trousers, thanks to the pants being loosely based. Slater also appeared as Lulu Quackenbush in Half-Wits Holiday, with Curly eating her lipstick, thinking it is edible. Thanks to the popularity of the Stooges, Slater is seen almost daily worldwide due to the films' constant television broadcasts.
Slater left Hollywood in 1947, and married character actor Robert Foulk that same year. They were married until his death in 1989. Slater was later married to Charles Sims until her death on October 14, 1997.
