Baby Peggy 100 -- October 26, 2018

Motion Picture Magazine, November, 1924
Child star Baby Peggy Montgomery was born 100 years ago today, on 26-October-1918.  She is still with us today and is called Diana Serra Cary.  She may be our only remaining silent movie star.  Her father cleverly blew all the money that she had earned in movies.

She went on to live a productive life, writing for radio shows and later writing books.  I read her book The Hollywood Posse many years ago and did not realize the author's earlier identity.

Happy birthday, Diana Serra Cary.  I hope you have many more.
