~Biography~
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.
