The city of Washington this week is playing host to a rare visitor from the golden age of Hollywood. Television and movie actress Margaret Kerry, currently celebrating her 85th year in show business, is here for several days to visit in Washington and Vincennes.
Known for acting roles in the Little Rascals, The Andy Griffith Show and The Lone Ranger, Kerry is likely best remembered as the live-action reference model for Tinker Bell in the 1953 Walt Disney animated production of Peter Pan.
She is also an accomplished voice over artist in several animated works including Clutch Cargo, a pioneer in the Saturday morning cartoon genre.
As a guest of the Legends Village Assisted Living facility in Washington she will receive a special honor on Wednesday.
The public is invited to attend the event which will include refreshments and prize giveaways. Kerry will also be on hand to autograph her autobiography, “Tinker Bell Talks! Tales of a Pixie Dusted Life”.
