Peggy Ann Garner was a successful child actor

Peggy Ann Garner (February 3, 1932 – October 16, 1984) was a successful child actor. Garner played her first film role at six years of age in 1938 and won the Academy Juvenile Award for her work in “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” (1945). Though she was featured in such films as “Black Widow” (1954), they did not further her attempts to establish herself in mature film roles. Garner then turned to theatrical work and had relatively few acting appearances in film as an adult.
