  • A brunette starlet from Minnesota, Margaret Quimby suffered all the indignities inherent in serial-making as Joe Bonomo's leading lady in Universal's Perils of the Wild, which was a pumped-up screen version of the classic Swiss Family Robinson. She suffered again four years later as George Jessel's ingenuous girlfriend in the part-talkie Lucky Boy (1929), but for quite different reasons. This maudlin tale was one of those "part-talkies" but Margaret didn't get to "talk" at all. Instead, she was serenaded at length by her co-star while enjoying a rear projection landscape from the viewing platform of a train bound for sunny California. Jessel sang "My Real Sweetheart" to her, but it was not one of the film's more memorable ballads. As it happened, sound basically ruined Quimby's career and she retired to marry.
