Jean Darling Our Gang

“I went on vaudeville tours that kept me working and traveling day and night. I have the most fun when I entertained at orphanages. Then I was allowed to play with the orphans for half an hour. I was in every kind of show businesses but burlesque and the circus. I almost appeared in the circus once. A circus asked me to lead the parade one day. I wanted to do it more than anything, but my mother wouldn’t let me. She said the circus wouldn’t pay enough.”Jean Darling, one of the silent Our Gang cast members.

 

“I had made one million dollars before I was 10, but I don’t know where it went. I had a mink coat and pretty clothes and lived in the best places, but I never got any of the money.”Jean Darling

“It took a long time for me to achieve happiness. I’m afraid it’s the same story with those other kids I appeared with in the ‘Our Gang’ comedies, and some of them never did.”Jean Darling
