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. -- edited from "Those Endearing Young Charms" by Marc Best
