At Reliance-Mutual, she was featured in the 'Komic Comedies' (1914-15), and successfully created her own regular character, a feisty stenographer named 'Ethel'. Publicity at the time touted her as 'the female Chaplin'. She gained further public notice by winning a bathing suit contest at Venice, California, which led to further job offers. Between 1916 and 1919, Fay starred in two-reelers for Arts-Triangle, Keystone and Al Christie. She even briefly, and unsuccessfully, fronted her own production company. In 1923, she settled at Universal, adopting the character 'Min Gump' in the long-running Andy Gump series, based on the comic strip. The coming of sound, coinciding with the end of the series in 1928, prompted Fay's sudden and permanent departure from the screen. She had a heart attack in her sleep and died.
