Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

A star for various independent producers as early as 1911, dark-eyed Fritzi Brunette (born Florence Brunet) later became a leading lady for Victor, Powers, and, in the last years of its existence, the Selig Polyscope Company, often appearing opposite her husband, actor/director William Robert Daly. She played supporting roles in the 1920s and was one of many fading silent stars to obtain work as a dress extra after the advent of sound. Never retiring, Brunette's final known appearance came in Universal's You're Telling Me (1942), in which she can be spotted along with her older sister, Vera.
