Though forgotten today, Baby Marie Osborne was an incredibly popular pre-1920s movie child star-so popular, in fact, that she had her own production company. The fact that Baby Marie ended her Hollywood days as a bit player and stand-in should not dim the luster of her long-ago international celebrity. Her 1919 vehicle Child of M'sieu was a thinly disguised adaptation of Robert Browning's poem Pippa Passes. Contemporary reviews suggest that this was the only time that Browning's poem received anything approaching a decent screen treatment. In the "Little Miss Fixit" title role, Baby Marie was permitted to alternate between laughter and tears.
