Arlene Pretty 1910s Kromo Gravure Trading Card - Silent Film Star

Arline Pretty (1885–1978) Arline Pretty (her actual name) had experience on stage, playing everything from juvenile leads to Shakespeare, before making her film debut in 1913. She freelanced for different studios and worked in all genres, but she found success doing serials for Vitagraph and Pathe. She worked steadily until the coming of sound, when her career nosedived. She wound up doing a lot of unbilled extra work, often at MGM. However, she had saved and invested wisely the money she made during the height of her popularity, and worked pretty much because she wanted to, not because she had to. She died in Los Angeles in 1978
