The Great Peggy Ann Garner
29 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I share your passion of Peggy Ann Garner.What a talent she was. It is too bad that she had to leave this earth on Octoiber 16,1984. She had a very hard life but no one will ever forget her in her classic performance A Tree Grows In Brooklyn. She was an angel in this movie. I have the book Plain Beautiful The Life Of Peggy Ann Garner . I recommend it to anyone who loves Peggy. She is gone but she will never be forgotten.As an adult she had memorable roles but her angelic expression as a child actress will be in our hearts and long as life exists. I own a rare video clip of Peggy talking to Bob Hope the night she won the Oscar for A Tree Grows In Brooklyn. God bless Peggy Ann Garner.
