Vivian Martin, one of the most attractive and successful of Mary Pickford's professional rivals, played the title role in Little Miss Brown. Adapted from a play by Philip Bartholomae, the story takes place in a busy Connecticut hotel. Through no fault of her own, Betty Brown (Martin) gets entangled in the marital warfare between Mr. and Mrs. Glenton (played by Edward M. Kimball -- who, incidentally, was the father-in-law of director James Young -- and Julia Stuart). Essential to the outcome of the story is a $10,000 endowment, which will be presented to the battling Glendons if they can prove that theirs is a happy marriage. Comedian Johnny Hines, not yet a star but already a pleasing screen presence, scored a comic bullseye as a hyperkinetic bellboy. Another future star in the cast of Little Miss Brown was perennial sourpuss Ned Sparks, here cast as a cynical night clerk.
