Marion Davies Was Outstanding
3 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Marion Davies, (Peg O'Connell) plays the role of a very young girl who lives with her father Pat O'Connell, (J.Farrell MacDonald) in a simple fishing village where she is a bit of a tom boy gal who is full of energy and fun and well liked. One day Pat & Peg are visited by Sir Gerald Markham, (Onslow Stevens) who tells Peg & Pat they are heirs to the estate of her grandfather, who hated Pat. Peg is told she has to go to England for three years to learn to become a lady and she is never to see her father Pat. Things start to change in Peg's life and she begins to want to live with her father and does her very best to find her dad. Peg has many lovers and falls in love with one man and he decides to marry another woman. There is plenty of drama and comedy in this film and Marion Davies gives an outstanding performance.
