Good Look at Baby Peggy

Baby Peggy, the Elephant in the Room (2012)

*** (out of 4)

Good, hour long documentary taking a look at the career and life of Diana Serra Cary, better known to silent film buffs as Baby Peggy. The documentary covers Peggy's rise to fame at such a young age before she was pretty much thrown out of Hollywood, lost all her money and had to see her family struggle for years to come. BABY PEGGY, ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM is a pretty good documentary that features the woman herself looking back over her career and commenting on everything from fame to being forgotten to knowing you're the one supporting your entire family. I thought the documentary really did a good job when it comes to detail because not only do we get clips from her movies but we also get some terrific photos, production cards as well as various articles that were written throughout the 20s. It's also interesting hearing from the lady herself as she looks back on her career and in the film tries explaining it to her young granddaughter. As with most child actors, there were some dark times that are covered in fine detail as well as the downside of fame on her family.
