Virginia Elizabeth Marshall (October 1, 1918 – January 30, 1982) also called Little Virginia Marshall, was a child actress in silent films between 1924 and 1928.
Virginia Elizabeth Marshall was born on October 1, 1918 in Dallas, Texas to Virginia G. Wallace of Cuba, Missouri and Wallace L. Marshall of Tyler, Texas.
Marshall appeared in a Los Angeles Times feature entitled Stars Tomorrow? in April 1925. She was among a group of children that included Vonda Phelps and Virginia Davis. The article questioned whether their stardom would continue or fade away with time. In fact the nine youth performers profiled only remained popular with theatre and film audiences for a brief time, Marshall's motion picture career lasted from 1924–1928.
She performed in thirteen screenplays. The films include comedy shorts like Little Robinson Corkscrew (1924), the melodrama, East Lynne (1925), and the western, The Arizona Wildcat (1927). Marshall was given the opportunity to act with many stars of her era, such as Tom Mix, Alma Rubens, Edmund Lowe, and Dorothy Revier.
Around 1940 she married Ray G. Montgomery, Jr. (1913–1995) of Denver, Colorado.
She died on January 30, 1982 in Hemet, California.
