Ella Augusta Hall was born in Hoboken, New Jersey on March 17, 1896. Her family moved to Hollywood in the early days of silent films so her mother could pursue an acting career. Her mother was May Hall, a struggling actress who never reached any level of notoriety.
Ella Hall married actor Emory Johnson in 1919. They would have four children together. Two of their children would go on to have limited acting careers - Ellen Hall and one of her sons, Richard Emory.
Ella Hall's first credited film appearance was the lead role in the 1913 film Memories. Her career took off after that film, and she appeared in thirty-seven films from 1913 through the end of 1914. She had another thirty-nine film appearances from 1915 through 1919. She did not appear in another film until 1921. Her career had slowed considerably during this span of a two-year break, and she would only star in seven more films. Her best-known film was The Flying Dutchman, released in 1923, which was her final silent film.
She was residing in Los Angeles, California at the time of her death on September 3, 1981.
