Puglia started his career at age fifteen when he joined a traveling operetta company. He came to the U.S. in 1907 and worked in a laundry before joining an Italian language theatre group in New York. In 1921, while appearing on stage, was spotted by D.W. Griffith and hired immediately. Puglia played a number of ethnic roles throughout his career, as well as frequently playing priests, diplomats and musicians.
