Die Schauspielerin Ethel Clayton gehörte zu den Pionierinnen des amerikanischen Films und ihre ersten Auftritte lassen sich bis auf das Jahr 1909 zurückdatieren, wo sie in den Produktion "Justified" (09), "Gratitude" (09), "The Brothers" (09) und "The Twelfth Juror" (09) auftrat.

In den 10er Jahren folgte ihre intensivste Zeit beim Film und sie verkörperte meist leidende Frauen in Filmen wie "For the Love of a Girl" (12), "The Last Rose of Summer" (12), "Friend John" (13), "Mary's Temptation" (13), "The Lion and the Mouse" (14), "The Gamblers" (14), "The Wolf" (14), "It All Depends" (15), "The Blessed Miracle" (15), "In the Dark" (15), "The Deception" (15), "A Woman's Way" (16), "Beyond the Wall" (16), "The Web of Desire" (17), "Easy Money" (17), "The Mystery Girl" (18), "The Woman Next Door" (19) und "A Sporting Chance" (19).

Ab den 20er Jahren wurde sie mehrheitlich für Nebenrollen engagiert, die ihrem schauspielerischen Vermögen nicht immer gerecht wurden.
Zu ihren bekanntesten Filmen dieser Jahre zählen "The Thirteenth Commandment" (20), "Young Mrs. Winthrop" (20), "The Sins of Rosanne" (20), "The Cradle" (22), "Wings of Youth" (25), "Risky Busines" (26) und "The Princess on Broadway" (27).

Im Tonfilm der 30er und 40er Jahre folgten nochmals unzählige Auftritte in Nebenrollen und sie agierte in populären Filmen wie "Call of the Circus" (30), "Thrill of Youth" (32), "The Crooked Circle" (32), "Private Jones" (33), "Easy to Take" (36), "Exclusive" (37), "Souls at Sea" (37), "Bulldog Drummond's Revenge" (37), "Wells Fargo" (37), "The Buccaneer" (38), "You and Me" (38), "If I Were King" (38), "Boy Trouble" (39), "Geronimo" (39), "New York Town" (41), "The Major and the Minor" (42), "True of Life" (43), "The Blue Dahlia" (46) und "The Perils of Pauline" (47).

Danach zog sich Ethel Clayton vom Filmgeschäft zurück.
