All around the world, stores sold Baby Peggy dolls, sheet music, jewelry and even milk. But by the age of 11, Baby Peggy was broke her money twice stolen and squandered by her family. A has-been without any formal education, she had never even been taught to read or write. Over the course of the next six decades this neglected child reinvented herself as Diana Serra Cary, a respected author, film historian and advocate for laws protecting child performers. Withnarration co-written by Cary, Vera Iwerebor s moving documentary combines rare clips from Baby Peggy s films with an intimate portrait of a woman who lost her childhood to the movies.
