Description:

A revealing biography of the little-known private life of this famous child star whose family set the style for many other stage parents who found fame and fortune through their child's stardom. It is also the rare instance when one major child star (Baby Peggy) employs her own hard-won insight in exploring the career and family woes of the most famous child star of the them all. This is the first published study of Coogan's life.
