B. was born on 19 April 1909 in Lodz, Poland.

Her father was the actor Max Bulman.

At the age of five she acted in a children's role in Lateiner's "Khinke and pinke" in Lodz's Grand Theatre, later in other children's roles. Afterwards she acted in children's roles in Lipovski's troupe in Vilna.

When her parents immigrated from Harbin to Seattle, Washington, America, she acted only in children's roles until she was in Philadelphia, where she finished public school, when she began to perform in a grown-up role in Gordin's "Sappho" with Kalich.

B. came to New York where she acted at the Irving Place Theatre. From there she went over to Elving in Newark, where she acted for two seasons as a soubrette, and from 1928-30 she was at the Second Avenue Theatre.
