Arthur Millett (April 21, 1874 in Pittsfield, Maine – February 24, 1952 in Los Angeles, California), born Arthur Nelson Millett, was an early American motion picture actor whose career was at its height in the silent film era.

Biography

Born in 1874, Millett was signed on to appear in his first film relatively late in life at age 40 in 1914, but immediately work began to pick up. His first film The Lost Treasure was released in 1914. In 1915, he starred in films such as Coals of Fire and The Law of the Wilds, working with prolific actors such as Harry von Meter and Vivian Rich.

Millett starred in a total of 116 film in his career. With the advent of sound films, however, his career declined significantly. In the majority of the roles in his 60 or so films after 1927, Millett was uncredited.

Millett was married to actress Neva Gerber.[1] He retired from film in 1940 and died in 1952.
