Brought to Hollywood in 1931 as a hopeful successor to Clara Bow, Peggy appeared in several films capatalizing on the avalanche of publicity comparing her to Clara Bow. In 1932 Peggy signed to Fox Pictures and co-starred with Spencer Tracy in The Painted Woman and Society Girl. Ater leaving Fox Peggy's career steadily declined despite good roles in Deluge(1933) and Night Life of the Gods(1935).Despite her good looks and sex appeal the plaintive quality in her acting never caught on with 1930s audiences.
