Fritzi Brunette (born Florence Brunet;[1] May 27, 1890 – September 28, 1943) was an American actress.

Early years

Fritzi Brunette was born Florence Brunet in Savannah, Georgia, although some sources list her birthname as Florence Simone.[2] She was educated in New York City.

Career

Brunette made her film debut in the 1912 short A Waiter of Weight, followed by The Joy Ride (1912), and His Neighbor's Wife (1912). Brunette appeared in films such as Unto Those Who Sin (1916), in which she played a working girl of squalor, lured by wealth and luxury, The Woman Thou Gavest Me (1919), While Satan Sleeps (1922), Bells of San Juan (1922), and Camille of the Barbary Coast (1925).

In the 1930s and 1940s, Brunette mainly acted in uncredited roles, with her final screen appearance being in You're Telling Me (1942).

Personal life

Brunette was the third wife of William Robert Daly, a silent film actor and director. Daly, who died around 1935, directed Brunette in many films.[3] After Daly's death, she married Louisville, Kentucky, real estate operator John E. Kley. They resided at 712 North Mansfield Avenue in Los Angeles, California.[citation needed]

Brunette possessed one of the most detailed wardrobes in the movie industry. She wore eighteen gowns in Unto Those Who Sin.[citation needed]

Death

Brunette died after an extended illness at the Motion Picture Country Home at the age of 53 in 1943. Funeral services were conducted from Pierce Brothers Hollywood Chapel, 5959 Santa Monica Boulevard. She was cremated.[citation needed]
