Minnie Dupree (January 19, 1873, La Crosse, Wisconsin - May 23, 1947, New York) was a stage and film actress.
She made her acting debut in a touring company in 1887. The next year, she made a big impression in a small role in William Gillette's New York play Held by the Enemy. Subsequently, she received a number of important supporting roles, working with the likes of Richard Mansfield, Stuart Robson, and Nat Goodwin. She finally landed a starring role in 1900 in Women and Wine. Other leading roles followed, including in The Climbers (1901), A Rose o' Plymouth-town (1902), Heidelberg (1902), The Music Master (1904), and The Road to Yesterday (1906). Her later stage career was not successful, exceptions being The Old Soak (1922), The Shame Woman (1923), Outward Bound (1924), playing Mrs. Midge, and as a replacement for the part of Martha Brewster in the hit Arsenic and Old Lace in 1941. She also made a handful of films, the most notable being The Young in Heart (1938), co-starring with Janet Gaynor, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Paulette Goddard, Roland Young, and Billie Burke. Her last stage appearance was in Land's End (1946).
On November 8, 1896, it was announced that she would marry Major William H. Langley, a reputed millionaire, at the end of the season. At the time, she was described as a "handsome blonde, and the possessor of a magnificent head of curly hair."
