Orville Caldwell, who registered well as Marion Davies' leading man in MGM's The Patsy, was afforded star billing in FBO's The Little Yellow House. A backwoods drama, the story details the tribulations of the Milburns, a farming family headed by an irresponsible alcoholic (William Orlamond). A wealthy relative offers to help out the Milburns, but the proud patriarch refuses to take charity. Fed up with her shabby existence, young Emily Milburn (Martha Sleeper) walks out on her family and heads to the Big City, where she is nearly violated by all-around cad Wells Harbison (Freeman Wood). Emily is rescued just in time by her hometown sweetheart Rob Hollis (Orville Caldwell). She returns home, vowing to make the best of things despite her dad's shiftless ways.
