Peggy Ann Plays Comedienne
23 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a huge Peggy Ann Garner fan. Ever since "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn," I have loved that girl and am sorry her career was so short and her private life so tough. I have three of her films in which she starred, all released in 1945. She only was featured in one other film that I know off (Home Sweet Homocide, which I haven't seen).

This film never having been released on VHS or DVD, I paid fairly big bucks to get an excellent tape of this.....and was disappointed. Even though it is labeled as a 1945 film, the same as "Brooklyn" and "Nob Hill," Peggy Ann looks at least two years older. She's no longer the cute little girl. Now, she's a full-fledged teen and this is really a teen girl's movie more than an adult's. Peggy Ann and real-life best friend Barbara Whiting are the co-stars of this comedy.

However, all is not lost. Peggy Ann still shows her tremendous talents, here demonstrating she can do comedy as well as drama in the role of young teen "Judy Graves." I wish I could say the same for Whiting, who plays her friend "Fuffy," but after a shaky start Barbara settles down and her acting is a little more relaxed.

The real star of the film, at least for having the best lines, is the father, "Harry Graves," played effectively by Alyn Joslyn. He was genuinely funny. The boys of Peggy''s oddball older sister Lois (Mona Freeman) also were amusing as they kept appearing at the front door throughout the film. The second half of the film is far better than the first as the comedic lines begin to connect.
