1943. Peggy was adopted age five by Harold Lloyd, a famous comedian, a shrewd investor and the richest man in Hollywood. Despite the family’s wealth, Peggy wanted to make her own way in the world. Given her looks, she began by trying her hand at modeling. Her success led to a role in Cover Girl. She will go on to work as a Hollywood gossip columnist, a talent scout for a radio DJ, a restaurant hostess, a bookkeeper for an advertising agency and a saleswoman. But her two marriages will not last long. A caption on the back of the photo reads:
