Biography by Hal Erickson

When Peggy Josephine Varnadow was signed by Universal Pictures in 1949, the public relations staff whittled down her name to the barest essentials, and thus Peggy Dow was born. The blonde actress was shown off to excellent advantage in her very first film, Undertow (1949), playing a witness to a gangland slaying. Peggy was also quite good in the thankless romantic-lead role in Harvey (1950), and even better as the steadfast girlfriend of blind war veteran Arthur Kennedy in Bright Victory (1951). Peggy Dow voluntarily ended her burgeoning film career when she married a wealthy Oklahoma oil man.
