A belated Happy 99th Birthday to Baby Peggy who's appearances in films began close to 97 years ago in 1921. May you have many more years of happiness!

She must be the only one left from silent pictures who is still with us?

Amazing to realize that Baby Peggy is actually a bit younger than Kirk Douglas and Olivia de Havilland.

Many happy returns of the day to her!

Wikipedia's "List of surviving silent film actors" entry mentions 14 confirmed silent film actors and actresses that are still alive. However, eventually the windows to the silent era will close. Silent film child star Don Marion Davis turned 100 on 10/9/2017. He is currently living in Tucson, AZ. Though this article is just over 6 months old, here is a link regarding long-lived Tucson natives. The article is appropriate for here as Davis is mentioned a few times: tucson.com/news/local/tucson-s-centenarians-are-an-optimistic-active-and-growing-group/article_a90f12f0-4c37-5156-b689-a6bd0a78931a.html
