Helen Prettyman Arnold was a silent film actress who appeared in motion pictures from 1916 - 1918.



Ms. Arnold was a member of the cast of the 1891 production of "Nerves" at the Lyceum Theatre in New York City. Arnold played Viola Campbell in a 1916 production of The Witching Hour filmed in Flushing, New York. The film starred C. Aubrey Smith and Marie Shotwell.[1] The movie was an adaptation of a play written by Augustus Thomas.[2] One review described it as better than the stage drama which preceded it, while retaining the mood of strangeness. Arnold was said to be "an attractive Viola".[3]

In June 1916, Arnold was among the winners of a Beauty and Brains contest held by Photoplay magazine.[4]

Arnold made Two Men and a Woman (1917) with Christine Mayo and Rubye De Remer.[5] The Ivan Film Productions, Inc., release is directed by William J. Humphrey.[6]

She made two other Hollywood films, One Law For Both (1917) and The Call of Her People (1917), which starred Ethel Barrymore. Her final film credit is for a role in the Italian film Il Doppio volto (1918).[7]
