Albertson was born in Reading, Pennsylvania, the son of George and Elizabeth (née Stock) Albertson,[1][2] and began his acting career on Broadway, where, among other productions, he played in Stubborn Cinderella. He was also active in vaudeville.[3]

Eventually he became a leading man of the 1920s, and was well known for his many character roles in motion pictures. He became one of the large number of silent movie actors who either would not or could not make the transition to the talkie era.

His cremated remains are located in Inglewood Park Cemetery, Inglewood, California.
