Lady Babbie often dresses as a gypsy wench and fraternizes with the poor weavers of the Auld Licht Kirk in the Thrums of 1840. Whenever the weavers begin to rebel against the city manufactures, her guardian, Lord Rintoul, sends soldiers to quell the rebellion, but Babbie always warns them beforehand. During one of these jaunts, she meets Gavin Dishart, the conservative new minister of the kirk. After and irritable beginning, the two become fast friends and soon find themselves in love.
Richard Watts Jr. - New York Herald Tribune - 1934
"There is little doubt that the star (Hepburn) is one of the major wonder workers of Hollywood, win an unconquerable gift for turning lavender and old lace into something dramatic vitality and conviction. Looking her handsomest and performing with considerable radiance, Miss Hepburn provides The Little Minister with much of the charm that went into the miracle of Little Women."
Andre Sennwald - The New York Times - 1934
"Although dear Babbie's elfin whimsies are likely to cause minor teeth-gnashing among unsympathetic moderns, Miss Hepburn plays the part with likable sprightliness and charm. In its mild-mannered and sober way, The Little Minister proves to be a photoplay of genuine charm."
