Creator: Virginia Weidler

"a knowing gleam in her eye that usually spelled trouble in one form or another for anyone at arm's reach"
Virginia Weidler (1927-1968) was an American child actress of the 1930s and a teen actress of the early 1940s.

Tropes:

  • Downer Ending: A bout of scarlet fever as a child resulted in a lifelong heart condition which ultimately claimed her life at the young age of 41.
  • Dyeing for Your Art: Weidler's brown hair was dyed blonde for the movie Peter Ibbetson. She was made up to match Ann Harding, who played the adult Mimsey.
