Actress. A child performer in Hollywood films of the late silent period. She was brought to the screen at age five by director James Cruze, who cast her in "The City That Never Sleeps" (1924) and her most important film, the epic western "The Pony Express" (1925). The success of the latter got her a contract with Warner Bros. Talkies prompted Darr's retirement at the ripe age of 10, but she re-emerged in the late 1930s as a bit player for MGM, apparently to subsidize her studies at UCLA. She graduated in 1941 and left films for good, choosing to marry and raise a family. Her other credits include "One Glorious Night" (1924), "Border Vengeance" (1925), "Happy Days" (1926), "On Trial" (1928), "The Dummy" (1929), "That Certain Age" (1938), "Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever" (1939), "Strike Up the Band" (1940), "Men of Boys Town" (1941), and "The Chocolate Soldier" (1941). (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
