The Six Brown Brothers resumed performing in July 1928 and stayed together until 1933 as vaudeville, by then mostly combined with and subordinate to movies, collapsed and employment became sporadic and ill-paid. Known personnel changes during the period are noted. The history of the Tom Brown Music Company (bankrupt by 1937) is briefly outlined. The later lives of Tom and his surviving siblings are narrated, as are those of Theresa Valerio and Tom Brown Jr. The elder Tom spent most of 1938-44 in Canada, including a stay in Lindsay, Ontario.
