Perhaps, MB was the sister, or cousin of the Barbara Bromley (misspell = Browmley, Bronnley).

“If you've been "listening in" you have probably heard of "Ann Howe."
Anyway, radio seems to be making a new screen star. A star of the ether, "Ann Howe" is expected to emerge soon and materialize on the screen.
It was Don Meaney, well known in the picture industry through several years of association with the studios as a publicity man, who put "Ann" across. He promoted the girl as a mythical person seeking prominence in
From station KFI, in Los Angeles, he told the radio fans that "Ann Howe "could become a star if they would support her.
The radio fans answered, some thirty thousand of them. They declared they would boost "Ann Howe." An offer of a contract came to Meaney for his star from a comedy producer. But the publicity man wanted to
try out the idea on the whole country before he signed her up. He got the Associated Press interested in news of her and has traveled from radio station to radio station, from New York to San Francisco, telling the world about the girl.
Now Don reports "Ann" has had a screen test, shown herself a beauty and a personality and that she is soon to appear as star of a photoplay written by a prominent author.”
