A former child actress who had played Ivan opposite Alla Nazimova in the original Broadway production of A Doll's House, Gladys Hulette's two most prominent films came 12 years apart: Princess Nicotine (1909) and Tol'able David (1921). The former was a trick film highly inspired by French pioneer George Mèliés, the other Henry King's pastoral classic, in which Hulette played Richard Barthelmess' love interest. Very popular in the 1910s as a star for Vitagraph and Thanhouser, Tol'able David was something of a comeback for her but it didn't last. No longer in the bloom of youth, Hulette soon found herself playing supporting roles, often portraying hardened women. She was accepting bit parts and walk-ons by the advent of sound and in 1943 she was spotted as a box-office ticket seller at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
