Baby Peggy, RIP -- February 24, 2020

Motion Picture Magazine, November, 1924
Child star Baby Peggy Montgomery died today at the age of 101. Her name was most recently Diana Serra Cary.  She may have been our only remaining silent movie star.  Her parents 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.

We were lucky to have her for such a long time.
