Long before Shirley Temple, Baby Peggy Montgomery was filmdom's favorite moppet. In Helen's Babies, Montgomery plays Toddie, the niece of pretentious author Harry (Edward Everett Horton). Considering himself an expert on child-rearing, Harry finds he knows next to nothing about kids when Toddie is left in his care. Featured in the cast is "It Girl" Clara Bow, on the verge of full-blown stardom. After wearing out her welcome on screen, Montgomery grew up to become prolific author (and expert film historian) Diana Cary.
