Baby Peggy Films in Santa Barbara


Although the "Flying A" studio had folded in the early 1920s, filmmakers were still coming to Santa Barbara to use the studio's facilities or to take advantage of our city's picturesque locales.


In 1922, Baby Peggy, one of the most famous kid-stars, was here filming. "Baby Peggy to Work at Santa Barbara. As soon as Baby Peggy returns from San Diego . . . she will go to Santa Barbara, where additional shots will be made." – Motion Picture News, November 18, 1922


This movie, Carmen, Jr., was released in 1923.
