Baby Peggy: The Elephant in the Room (DVD)
Directed by Vera Iwerebor
Hollywood discovered Peggy-Jean Montgomery when she was 19 months old, and by the age of two, they made her a star. By the time Peggy was six years old, she had acted in hundreds of films and had her own line of Baby Peggy products available around the world. Sadly, her fame was short-lived, as she aged out of childhood innocence and her family abused her profits for their own luxuries. Director Vera Iwerebor combines rare clips from Peggy's lost films with narration by the starlet herself to weave a tale about fame, corruption, and the machinations of old Hollywood.
DVD Extras Include:
CAPTAIN JANUARY (1924) 64 min. Starring Hobart Bosworth, Baby Peggy and Irene Rich. Music composed and performed by Donald Sosin. With Joanna Seaton (vocals).
Three short films starring Baby Peggy: CARMEN JR. (1923), PEG O' THE MOUNTED (1924) and SUCH IS LIFE (1924). Music composed and performed by Guenter Buchwald.
Song: “That’s My Baby” performed by Donald Sosin (piano) and Joanna Seaton (vocals).
