Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Little Miss Hoover is not the story of a female vacuum cleaner salesperson. The title is a reference to Herbert Hoover, who in the years following World War I was instrumental in teaching advanced agricultural skills to American farmers. Leading lady Marguerite Clark (who, though on the cold side of thirty, could still pass as a "Little Miss") plays a girl who is caught up in America's accelerated farm program. Breaking up the propaganda from time to time is Clark's romance with Army major Eugene O'Brien. Originally titled The Golden Bird, Little Miss Hoover was adapted from a novel by Maria Thompson Daviess.
