Ella Hall (17 March 1896 – 3 September 1981) was an American actress of the silent era. She appeared in 94 films between 1912 and 1933. She was the mother of B-movie actress Ellen Hall.


She was born Ella August Hall in New York, New York, and moved to Hollywood in the early days of silent films, to pursue an acting career. Her mother had been May Hall, a struggling actress that never reached any level of notoriety. Hall was briefly married to actor Emory Johnson, with whom she would have two children, future B-movie actress Ellen Hall and one son, Richard Emory, who also would later have a limited acting career.

Ella Hall's first credited film appearance was the lead role in the 1913 film Memories. Her career took off after that film, with her appearing in thirty seven films from 1913 through the end of 1914. She had another thirty nine film appearances from 1915 through 1919, then it wasn't until 1921 when she received another role. 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 also would be her final silent film.

She had a minor appearance, uncredited, in the 1930 Cecil B. DeMille film Madam Satan, and had her last film appearance in 1933, in the film The Bitter Tea of General Yen. She was residing in Los Angeles, California at the time of her death on September 3, 1981.
