Movie Info

German actress Dorothea Wieck, who achieved international fame in Maedchen in Uniform, was given a brief shot at Hollywood stardom in 1933 and 1934. Miss Fane's Baby is Stolen stars Ms. Wieck as an actress whose child (Baby LeRoy) is kidnapped. As Wieck takes to the radio to beg for her boy's safe return, the abductors cover their trail by disguising the kid with black hair dye. Farm wife Alice Brady, who gives the impression of being a little light in the belfry, saves the day when she tumbles to the kidnappers' deception. Based on the recent Lindbergh kidnapping, Miss Fane's Baby is Stolen did absolutely nothing to advance the reputation of Dorothea Wieck. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Miss Fane's Baby Is Stolen

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

The happy ending, on which Adela Rogers St. Johns, who adapted the tragic story by Rupert Hughes, insisted, and which should have made as laugh and sob at the same time, somehow falls flat.

June 25, 2021 | Full Review…

A topical film which draws tears with out half trying.

June 3, 2019 | Full Review…

It is set forth with intelligence and tact, and Dorothea Wieck's performance as the mother is extraordinarily true, fine and restrained.

July 23, 2019 | Full Review…

There are some exciting moments and a final pursuit scene which has the audiences leaping from their seats in an effort to help.
