Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

Silent-screen child-actress "Baby" Vondell Darr played Virginia Lee Corbin as a five-year-old in The City That Never Sleeps (1924) and was the unwanted result of Elaine Hammerstein's One Glorious Night (1924). Later, a ten-year-old Vondell found her father Bert Lytell accused of a crime he didn't commit in On Trial (1928), and was abducted by gangsters in Ruth Chatterton's The Dummy (1929). These latter films were early talkies, but sound basically ended Vondell Darr's career. Following in the footsteps of another silent child-star, Baby Marie Osborne, Darr attempted a comeback as an ingenue in the late 1930s but was none too successful.
