History: Fetching cutie Margaret "Peggy" Cartwright was a Canadian silent film actress cast as the original Our Gang leading lady after her work in the highly popular Harold Lloyd comedies also produced by Hal Roach Studios. She and her brother Dick performed together on stage as a dance team, and also appeared together on film in One Terrible Day. After her Rascals work, Peggy married once and had four children, later marrying a second time to African-American actor William Walker, best known for playing the preacher in the classic, "To Kill A Mockingbird," with Gregory Peck. She returned to Canada and appeared at the 12th International Sons of the Desert/Way Out West Convention in 2000; it was her only public appearance since leaving the series.
