Running 211 feet (approximately 4 minutes), Little Darling was filmed right after the more ambitious D. W. Griffith production 1776: or, The Hessian Renegades. Appearing in both films as the heroine was 16-year-old Mary Pickford. A country couple receives a letter announcing that their city relatives are sending their "little darling" for a visit. Having never met the "darling," the couple sets about to create a nursery, filling the room with all sorts of baby toys. Imagine their surprise when the Little Darling turns out to be a rambunctious teenager (played, of course, by Pickford). Most of the film was shot on the premises of the Caudebac Inn, D.W. Griffith's Upstate New York headquarters.
