TCM Senior Researcher Alexa Foreman, Miss Peggy Cummins, and VP of Talent, Darcy Hettrich in Club TCM in 2012....

Femme Fatale Peggy Cummins, a TCM Film Festival Special Guest in 2012, was a lovely lady. She told me that she was still amazed and surprised at the popularity of her film, Gun Crazy, when I visited with her at the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in 2012. Cummins had just flown in from her home in England, but seemed thrilled to be back in Hollywood to share her experiences with pass holders. Her soft, lilting voice and her open manner seemed light years away from her performance as Annie Laurie Starr in the 1950 film she helped introduce with Eddie Muller, the Czar of Noir, and Director of the Film Noir Foundation.
