Darla Hood was a child actress from the 1930s to the 1970s. She started making "Our Gang" comedies when she was four years old, and she appeared in many of them as "Darla", who was the object of Alfalfa's affections. She was the most famous of the Our Gang female actresses. She was also in The Bohemian Girl (with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy). Her post Our Gang career was troubled. She became a singer and a sort of ventriloquist, but only had a few roles on TV and in commercials, and her only real movie role was as the secretary in the 1959 Vincent Price film, "The Bat". She had 5 children by two husbands. In 1979 she filmed "The Little Rascals' Christmas Special" for TV, but she had recently had an appendectomy, and she was given a transfusion which gave her hepatitis, and she died before that TV special aired. She was just 47 years old.
