Baby Peggy

Child actress

Born - 29 November 1918, San Diego, California, USA
Died - 24 February 2020

Dark-haired, serious-looking moppet, a popular child performer in the Hollywood of the 1920s. Born Peggy-Jean Montgomery, she was the daughter of a stuntman in silent-screen westerns. For a brief while, Peggy was the family breadwinner, but alas, she was washed up at 10, although there was a brief comeback a little later in teenage roles. She had entered films in 1921, a year in which she made at least 20 short films, including Playmates, Pals and Get-Rich-Quick Peggy. Later appearances came in Little Miss Mischief (1922), Penrod (1922, her first feature), Little Red Riding Hood (1922), Peg o' the Movies (1923), Little Miss Hollywood (1923), The Kid Reporter (1923), Peg o' the Mounted (1924), Captain January (1924), The Flower Girl (1924), Helen's Babies (1925), April Fool (1926), 8 Girls in a Boat (1934), A Girl of the Limberlost (1934), Ah Wilderness! (1935), Girls' Dormitory (1936), True Confession (1937) and Having Wonderful Time (1938). In 2015, she made an appearance at the ripe old age of 96 in the half-hour film Broncho Billy and the Bandit's Secret.
