A gifted actress, Margaret O'Brien became one of the most popular movie stars of the 1940's. At age three she expressed a serious desire to pursue acting and posed for magazine covers for photographer Paul Hesse.

Her film debut came with a one-minute short in M.G.M.'s Babes on Broadway (1941). It was producer Dorey Schary who then cast her in Journey for Margaret (1942) as the orphaned little girl during the war. Overnight Margaret O'Brien soared to stardom! She was Heralded as a "sensation," a "child marvel" and M.G.M. signed her to a long-term contract.

Margaret remained the major child star throughout the 1940's, becoming a number one box office attraction. Her unforgettable performance as "Tootie" in Vincente Minnelli's Meet Me In St. Louis (1944) won her an Academy Award and earned her the position of "America's Favorite Sweetheart."

She held tight to her crown, turning out amazing performances in such classics as The Canterville Ghost (1944), Our Vines Have Tender Grapes (1945), Lost Angel (1946) and Unfinished Dance (1947). Her hair-raising perfemance with Dean Stockwell in The Secret Garden (1948) and Little Women (1949) immortalized her in the tear-filled eyes of audiences world wide. Additional movie successes (more than twenty in all) included Three Wise Fools (1946), Tenth Avenue Angel (1948) and Music For Millions (1944).

Her career has seen her work with the best of Hollyood: Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Young, Mary Astor, Red Skelton, Judy Garland, June Allison, Mickey Rooney, Orson Wells, Joan Fontaine & Edward G. Robinson.

By the early 1950's Margaret had made a mint for M.G.M. and earned a personal fortune. Her star-status kept her working in films sporadically, and she did a great deal of stage and television work. She continues to accept occasional acting assignments today. Over Ten Years of Doing Business on The World Wide Web! +1 (626) 789-6479
