Peggy
11 April 2017 | by sakliegel-1See all my reviews

I saw this movie - "Peggy"- on television and loved it. I sure wish it would come out on DVD. The film covered the Rose Princess in Pasadena before they included all colleges. Times were better then. Hope if it does come out on DVD, you will watch it. Diana Lynn is adorable and an excellent actress.
