Phyllis Allen (November 25, 1861 – March 26, 1938) was an American vaudeville and silent screen comedian. She worked with Charles Chaplin, Mabel Normand, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, and Mack Sennett during a film career spanning 74 movies in the decade between 1913 and 1923. Due to her imposing demeanour and perennially haughty expression, she was quite similar in appearance to fellow screen comedian Marie Dressler.[1][2]
