Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Black American actress, singer and dancer who began her career at age 5 when Hal Roach took her out of an orphanage to play Farina for about a year in his "Our Gang" comedies. Brown's career in film was rather brief, though she did small roles in the later all-Black features "The Green Pastures" (1936) and "Stormy Weather" (1943). Brown also sang and danced for many years as the headliner of Babe Barlow and the Sugar Drops. Not to be confused with white American actress Lucille Brown, leading lady of a handful of modest films in the 1930s.
