Too bad for Margaret O' Brien
9 July 2007 | by (Rockport, Maine) – See all my reviews

Margaret O'Brian was an absolutely luminous child star, very sweet and amazingly cute, also able to handle roles of some emotional depth.

As a teenager, she still has echoes of these qualities, but, while they were amazing in her younger years, they are only a little above average as a teen.

It's really too bad...she might have succeeded in a better, deeper and more demanding role, but this piffle would have torpedoed Elizabeth Taylor.

Too bad. After her successes in childhood, it would have been quite satisfying to see her succeed as a teen and an adult. It's hard not to be fond of her as a child star.
