Born Vivian Ruth Andersen in San Francisco, California, she was the daughter of Norwegian immigrants Edward Andersen and Anna Marthine Olsen. Her siblings' names were Edward, Herbert (née Hagbart), and Edna. She was one half of the vaudeville team "The Oakland Sisters" with her younger sister Edna,[2] who later performed in motion pictures as Dagmar Oakland.[3][4] After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Anna Andersen, a widow since 1898, moved the family to Oakland, California. In 1917, she married actor John T. Murray (1886–1957).[5] Oakland performed on Broadway and with the Ziegfeld Follies.[6][7]


She supported Laurel and Hardy on several occasions, and sometimes played the wife of Edgar Kennedy and Leon Errol in their series of short films. She played mostly bit roles in feature films in the 1940s before making her last film, an Errol comedy, in 1951. She retired from acting in 1951, settling in Sherman Oaks, California. She died seven years later and was buried in Chapel of the Pines Crematory.[8]
