Chance To See Peggy Ann Garner At 30
13 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had to get the DVD with this episode after I heard that Peggy Ann Garner had a role in it. Garner was my favorite child actress, thanks to her incredible Oscar- winning performance in "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn." I have several of her films from that year, 1945, but had never seen her as an adult. Her career after her teenage years was very limited on screen and her talent wasted through either bad decisions of hers or stupid neglect of talent by movie producers.

Anyway, she's in this film with Albert Salmi, whom she was married to at the time, and was about 30 years old. Unfortunately her role was not big in here but at least I got to see what she looked like. The story really revolves around Salmi, a guy who thinks he's going to get charged with a crime he didn't commit and goes on the lam, so to speak. The "good guys" in here go to great lengths to find the real killer and get Albert off the hook.

The episode is fair: seen better, seen worse. However, for anyone who shares my interest in Peggy Ann, here's a chance to see her again.
