Der Schauspieler Henry Kolker sammelte erste darstellerische Erfahrungen beim Theater, schliesslich kam er im Alter von 45 Jahren zum Film, wo er oftmals autoritäre Charakteren wie Richter, dominierende Väter, Ärzte, Anwälte oder Priester spielte.

Noch bevor er seinen ersten Film als Schauspieler drehte, realisierte er1914 den Film "Santo Icario" (14) als Regisseur.
Er drehte in den kommenden Jahren weitere Filme als Regisseur, darunter "The Third Generation" (20), "The Greatest Love" (20), "Disraeli" (21), "The Leopardess" (23) und "The Great Well" (24).

Seine grössten Erfolge indes feierte er als Filmschauspieler und ab 1915 agierte er regelmässig in Stummfilmen wie "The Bigger Man" (15), "The Shell Game" (18), "The Great Victory, Wilson or the Kaiser? The Fall of the Hohenzollerns" (19), "A Man of Stone" (21), "Hell's Four Hundred" (26), "Annie Laurie" (27) und "Coquette" (29).

Mit dem Tonfilm der 30er Jahre nahm seine Popularität weiterhin zu und er agierte neben vielen grossen Stars der damaligen Zeit wie Gary Cooper, Katherine Hepburn, Barbara Stanwyck und Melvyn Douglas.

Zu seinen zahlreichen Rollen dieser Jahre zählen "Abraham Lincoln" (30), "Du Barry, Woman of Passion" (30), "The Spy" (31), "Rasputin and the Empress" (32), "Baby Face" (33), "The Cat and the Fiddle" (34), "Whom the Gods Destroy" (34), "Imitation of Life" (34), "Charlie Chan in Paris" (35), "Reckless" (35), "Mad Love" (35), "The Last Days of Pompeii" (35), "The Great Impersonation" (35), "Romeo and Juliet" (36), "Conquest" (37), "The Adventures of Marco Polo" (38), "Marie Antoinette" (38), "Too Hot to Handle" (38), "Union Pacific" (39) und "Here I Am a Stranger" (39).

Nach den exzessiven Auftritten in den 30er Jahren folgten in den 40er Jahren nur noch wenige weitere Filme, vor allem zu Beginn dieses Jahrzehnts.
