RIP Peggy Stewart

Actress Peggy Stewart (real name Margaret O’Rourke) who worked steadily in Hollywood, on TV and on the stage, died May 29, just a few days short of her 96th birthday.

Her first role was in the 1930s, her last was in 2014. In between she played in more than 100 films. She was a contract player for Republic Pictures for many years.

MSTies may recall a small role she had in a TV movie originally called “The Stranger,” later re-edited and retitled (episode 305-) STRANDED IN SPACE. She had an uncredited role as an “inner council member.”

Nice appreciations of her career are here and here.

Thanks to Tim for the heads up.

    Wow, from 1937-2014… did her acting roles really span 77 years?!?
    And her TV appearances include classics over many, MANY decades.
    Seems like an amazing career. God rest you, dear lady.
