Dill was part of the vaudeville team Kolb and Dill, partnering with Clarence Kolb. Dill's short career in film began when he was 39 years old. Kolb co-starred in some of his films. Dill worked in Beloved Rogues with actor Harry von Meter in 1917, and it was Dill's last film, though he lived for decades more. (Kolb later returned to films and was a busy Hollywood character actor from the 1930s to the 1950s.)
