Leroy Shield wasn't Minnesota's only Little Rascal's connection. From the book: The Life and Times of Our Gang by Leonard Maltin and Richard Bann: "...Casting twenty-six-year-old June Marlowe as the demure Miss Crabtree was a great boon to the series, and set a lucrative pattern for a number of wonderful sequels. "Miss Crabtree" was born Gisela Goetten and moved to Hollywood from [St. Cloud] Minnesota. She'd been both a Warner's and Universal contractee before landing at Roach, where she also worked with Charley Chase and Laurel & Hardy before marrying a Hollywood businessman and retiring from films."
