Oliver “”Babe”Hardy transferred to Jacksonville in 1913 and made 50 brief one-reeler films for Lubin Studios. After moving to New York, he went back to Jacksonville around 1915 and appeared in more than 60 comedies for the Vim Comedy Company and the King Bee studios, where he worked with Charlie Chaplin imitator Billy West and comical actress Ethel Burton Palmer. Hardy followed the King Bee studio to New Jersey and then to Hollywood, where he would start his celebrated collaboration with Stan Laurel in 1921.

She co-starred in numerous Billy West funnies (a popular Charlie Chaplin imitator), and was married to director Arvid Gillstrom, a Swedish-born filmmaker who directed numerous of the West funnies. Burton did little acting after the 1910s. The majority of the films she made in Florida were with the Vim Funny Business.
