Perhaps as an answer to the 1936 Jane Withers vehicle Little Miss Nobody, this 1937 British quota quickie is titled Little Miss Somebody. Irrepressible child-star Binkie Stuart plays an orphaned girl, forced to live with wicked George Carney. All the old grouch is interested in is Stuart's inheritance, so he treats the kid as atrociously as possible. But Stuart manages to return to her beloved foster family by film's end. As treacly as it sounds, Little Miss Somebody was produced, directed and written by Penrod Tennyson, whose name just might be more entertaining than the film.
