Bartine Burkett Zane (February 9, 1898 – May 20, 1994) was an American film actress, best recalled for her silent comedies and her late-in-life appearances in sitcoms and TV commercials. Among her earliest co-stars and friends were Buster Keaton, Roscoe Arbuckle, Al St. John, and Stan Laurel.[1]

Burkett appeared in nearly sixty silent films before retiring upon her 1928 marriage. Five years after her husband's death, she returned to acting in 1973, appearing in three films and a number of television programs and advertisements.[2] She was born in Robeline, Louisiana and died in Burbank, California.
