Little Iodine is a 1946 American comedy film directed by Reginald Le Borg and based on the King Features comic strip Little Iodine by Jimmy Hatlo. The film was written by Richard H. Landau and starring Jo Ann Marlowe as Little Iodine, Marc Cramer as Marc Andrews, Eve Whitney as Janis Payne, Irene Ryan and Hobart Cavanaugh as Iodine's parents Mrs. Tremble and Mr. Tremble. The film was released on October 20, 1946 by United Artists.
It is only adaptation of Little Iodine ever made.
Little Iodine stays true to form most of the way in this picture where she does her best to break up the marriage of her parents (Hobart Cavanaugh and Irene Ryan), ruin a romance between Marc Andrews and Janis Payne, and cost her father his job. But, unlike her comic-based character, Iodine has a change of heart and sets out to right the wrongs.
The film was going to released earlier than October 20, 1946, but was delayed due to was delayed due to many children across the United States gathering at movie theaters during a polio outbreak. The film has few differences such as the Tremblechins' middle name being changed to Tremble.
The film is lost, but a possible reason could be that King’s requirement that the prints and negatives be destroyed after ten years.
