After leaving the Biograph, DW Griffith formed Reliance-Majestic with Harry Aiken. Griffith brought along most of his Biograph stock company, including Fay Tincher, who became popular in the Bill, the Office Boy series of Komic comedies, playing Ethel, the Stenographer.  The typewriter dress and unusual hair became a trademark.
