Child actress Madge Evans plays the title role in The Adventures of Carol. One of those sugary miss-fixit types, Carol spreads a little sunshine wherever she goes. By film's end, she has straigthened out her selfish and insensitive family, through the simple expedient of running away to join the circus. Yes, this is the same Madge Evans who matured into a slim and lovely MGM leading lady in the 1930s. Adventures of Carol is based on a short story by Julia Burnham.
