Long before Shirley Temple's curls bounced their way into America's heart, Baby Peggy lit up marquees here and around the world. Discovered in 1920 at 19 months of age, she was put under contract with her first film at $75 a week. Working constantly, she was starred in dozens of Baby Peggy comedies and five feature films; she had earned more than $2 million by the time she was five. This story of the shared infancy of a child and an industry reveals the incredible life, responsibilities and burdens of a world famous child super-star.
