Bad Little Angel is a 1939 inspirational drama film starring Virginia Weidler as an orphan named Patsy Sanderson, living in America around 1900.

Treated with contempt in her small New England town, the lonely Patsy takes the advice of a dying woman and decides to live according to verses in the Bible. After reading a verse about Egypt, she flees her orphanage and spends almost all the money she has on a train ticket to a town called Egypt, New Jersey. There she finds friends and a new family, helps the downtrodden and awakens the consciences of wrongdoers. The film was based on the story Looking After Sandy by Margaret Turnbull.
