Miss Nobody (1926 film)

Miss Nobody is a 1926 silent film drama produced and distributed by First National Pictures and directed by Lambert Hillyer. The film is based on a short story by Tiffany Wells called "Shebo"; the likely feminine pronunciation of hobo. The stars of the film were Anna Q. Nilsson and Walter Pidgeon, then in a very early role in his career.[1] The plot of this film bears a striking resemblance to Beggars of Life, made two years later at Paramount.
