The Young Girl You Cast in A Perfect Crime (1921) later became Carole Lombard; how did you find her?

I saw a kid playing baseball on the street with some other kids - it was next door to  friend of mine who was a Paramount executive.  She was a cute-looking little tomboy - about twelve - a hoyden, out there knocking hell out of the other kids, playing better baseball than they were.  And I needed someone of her type for this picture.  She’d never acted, so we talked to her parents and they let her do it and she was very good. Her name was Jane Peters; she later change it to Carole Lombard.
~ Director, Allan Dwan
