Busy in films from 1921 to 1949, actress Tempe Pigott was generally cast as gabby cockneys. In the talkie era, she could usually be found playing drunken harridans or slovenly slum landladies. Her larger roles include the excitable Mrs. Hawkins in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931) and the long-suffering Mrs. Hudson in the 1933 Sherlock Holmes opus A Study in Scarlet (1933). Though her role as Dwight Frye's hateful Auntie Glutz was unfortunately cut from Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Tempe Pigott was well represented in other Universal horror films, notably Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932) and Werewolf of London (1935).
