Arthur Berthelet (at right, directing at Essanay Studios in Chicago, 1917)


American actor, stage and film director, dialogue director, and scriptwriter, credited as Rolette Bertheletto, Arthur Berthelet, and Arthur R. Berthelet. With regard to screen productions, he is best remembered for directing the 1916 crime drama Sherlock Holmes, starring William Gillette. In 1918, Berthelet also directed the controversial author and feminist Mary MacLane in Men Who Have Made Love to Me, a production notable for being among the first cinematic dramas to break the "fourth wall" and among the earliest American film projects to bring together on screen a woman's work as a published author, "scenarist", actor, and narrator through the use of intertitles.

Berthelet died while being treated for ongoing circulatory problems at Casa Del Mar Sanitarium near Vista, California, on 16 September 1949 at age 69 from a brain hemorrhage. He was survived by his wife Leona, their two sons, and by two of his brothers and two sisters.
