Virginia Weidler
Born on May 21, 1927
in Hollywood, California

303 ~ Virginia Weidler at the time of "Freckles"

Virginia Weidler was the daughter of Margaret Weidler, one time grand opera star. As a young girl, she enjoyed acting in and directing homemade plays with her five brothers and sisters. When she was five years old she received a part in a professional play entitled "Autumn Crocus." The part called for a little girl who could speak both French and German. Sitting in on one of her performances was Norman Taurog, a director for Paramount Pictures. He was so impressed with her that he signed her to appear in his forthcoming movie, "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch." That led to long-term contracts at Paramount and MGM.
