A pleasant-looking, dark-haired, light leading man of the 1920s, Coit Albertson had starred on Broadway in Stubborn Cinderella prior to making his screen debut for the pioneering Kalem company in 1915. The star of the 1920 serial The $1,000,000 Reward, Albertson settled into a career of mainly playing "The Other Man" in programmers. He became one of the many silent-screen actors who either would not or could not make the transition to sound films.
