Peggy Cartwright

Peggy Cartwright (November 14, 1912 - June 12, 2001) was a Canadian silent film actress perhaps best known for her short stint as the leading lady of the Our Gang comedies. She appeared in four shorts in 1922 and, possibly, the pilot for the series, Our Gang (the film is currently lost). Cartwright only appeared in the first four Our Gang shorts that premiered in 1922. One Terrible Day premiered on September 10, 1922, Fire Fighters premiered on October 8, 1922, Young Sherlocks premiered on November 26, 1922, and Saturday Morning premiered on December 3, 1922. Her first husband was Phil Baker with whom she had four children. She married African American actor William Walker in 1962. Cartwright made an appearance at the 12th International Sons of the Desert Convention in 2000. It was her first (and only) appearance at the convention, and she happily discussed her brief tenure in the Our Gang series. Cartwright died shortly thereafter in 2001. She was the last surviving member of the original Our Gang group of children.
