Re: Peggy Aarup

That's real nice that this family member posted her bio of Peggy Aarup, whom was pretty obscure to me, but a name I knew. Looks like she had a nice little career, too. We should ask this family member to post us a nice portrait of Peggy, as most of us may be able to place her in some particular come...

Thanks for posting Andrew.

Re: Contacting actors - need help

Lou, you should try the Screen Actors Guild or the other similar organizations.

Otherwise hit the phonebooks and start dialing! Took me a while to find Madeline Hurlock when she was right there in the NYC phonebook all the time for 50 years.

Good luck!
