Peggy Ann Garner first won the hearts of Americans
everywhere with her performance as the title character in the 1943 film
adaptation of Jane Eyre. Twelve-year-old Peggy Ann then gave an
Oscar-winning performance in the 1945 film A
Tree Grows in Brooklyn, going on to appear in many other films over the
course of her career. After the studio system broke up, she guest-starred on
many of television’s top shows from the 1950s to the ’70s, including Studio One, The US Steel Hour, Bonanza,
Naked City, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The
Untouchables, Batman, and Police Woman.

Peggy Ann Garner through family letters and communication with friends Carol
Burnett, Gregory Peck, Johnny Sheffield, Margaret O’Brien, and others. This
