Actress. Fuller was a major early movie star who, by 1914, rivaled Mary Pickford in popularity. Fuller starred in such melodramas as: “The Witch Girl,” “A Daughter of the Nile,” and “Under Southern Skies.” Then, Fuller disappeared from the limelight. Fuller's later life in obscurity was fraught with sadness and seemed right out of one of her films. She had apparently suffered a nervous breakdown following a star-crossed love affair with a married opera singer. Returning to her hometown of Washington, D.C., Fuller entered a mental institution to undergo lengthy treatment. In 1926, she returned to Hollywood and attempted to resume her screen career but there were no takers. The death of her mother in 1946 brought on another breakdown, and on July 1947, Fuller was admitted to Washington's St. Elizabeth Hospital. She remained there for 25 years, and when she died, the hospital was unable to locate any relatives.
