Peggy Knudsen first caught Hollywood's eye while playing the title role in "My Sister Eileen" on Broadway in 1942. Three years later as a Hollywood starlet, she closed the movie capital's much-visited Boulevard USO with a kiss, planted on the last serviceman to leave the establishment at the end of World War II.

She later became a leading lady in films of the 1940s and enjoyed a decade of television roles before illness forced her to retire from acting at the end of the 1950s.

Under contract to Warner Bros., she played in the movies "Humoresque," "The Big Sleep," "A Stolen Life" and "Stallion Road."
