Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

The "blonde bombshell" among the Our Gang kids, Jean Darling spent two years with the group from 1927-1929. She later played the young Jane Eyre ([1934] Virginia Bruce starred as the adult Jane), after which she retired from film. Surprisingly, the former moppet star became a competent Broadway ingenue and originated the role of Carrie Pipperidge in the original 1945 Broadway production of Carousel. Her final screen appearance was in 2013's The Butler's Tale, a short, silent film that made reference to Darling's beginnings in the industry. She died in 2015, at age 93.
