Script Details

***Please submit a custom demo*** 
Promising Universal Studio Actress, Peggy Dow, marries Oklahoma Oil Man, Walt Helmerich, in her hometown of Athens, Tennessee.
The beautiful movie star was born in Columbia, Mississippi and attended high school and junior college at Gulf Park College in Gulfport, Mississippi.
When the southern-born belle moved north, she experienced snow for the first time while attending college at Northwestern University in Illinois.
With other notable classmates like Paul Lynde, Peggy appeared in college plays while working with some of the great acting teachers and playwrights of the era.
She received her degree from Northwestern's School of Speech in 1948.
Soon after, the recent graduate visited a friend in Hollywood and in February of 1949, Universal Studios offered the talented blonde a seven-year contract.
After an early TV appearance in a show called The Mummy’s Foot, she made nine films, most notably as Nurse Kelly in Harvey starring James Stewart.
She co-starred with Best Actor Oscar nominee Arthur Kennedy in Bright Victory.
During her brief time in California, she lived for two years at the Hollywood Studio Club, a women’s hotel sponsored by Mrs. Cecil B. DeMille. Marilyn Monroe was one of her neighbors and a suitor sent Ms. Dow a pet alligator.

While living there she made other films including…

One of her favorite movies, You Can Never Tell… a screwball comedy about a man who leaves his estate to a dog.  The ravishing blonde and her costar, Dick Powell, had a wonderful time making this memorable film.
Reunion in Reno.
I Want You.
Woman In Hiding.
The Sleeping City.

While making movies, the beautiful star enjoyed all of the glamour of Hollywood, appearing on the cover of Life Magazine…

Attending the greatest night in the movie industry, the Academy of Motion Picture Awards, and giving Edith Head the Oscar Statue for dress designing…

And making public appearances wearing the finest gowns and jewelry with her friends, Rock Hudson, Tony Curtis, Piper Laurie and Grace Kelly…

Before leaving the glamorous Los Angeles life behind, Peggy was also privy to the behind-the-scenes chatter. While sitting next to Samuel Goldwyn at a dinner party, she had a lengthy discussion with him about technique.

He told her that Bette Davis relied too much on stage technique in film which made her expressions and gestures seem over the top.

While the future Mrs. Helmerich kept industry secrets, her famous gossip columnist friend, Hedda Hopper, reported it all.

In just five years, her friend Grace Kelly will follow in Peggy’s footsteps and marry a different kind of Prince…Both beautiful blondes will spend their married lives out of the Hollywood spotlight while raising their families. One star will shine bright over Monaco and the other over Oklahoma.

As for now, following a honeymoon in Hawaii, the newly married couple will return to Tulsa where they will spend the next half-century raising five sons. 
In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, the movie star-turned-philanthropist will take on several causes that will have a major impact on the Tulsa community such as healthcare education as developed in the Peggy
V. Helmerich Women’s Health Center at Hillcrest Academy…

Establishing The Tulsa Library Trust with a library named in her honor…

And numerous authors will be honored through the Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award.

An exciting and beautiful life well-lived…Peggy Dow Helmerich….Mother!...Wife!...Philanthropist!...And Forever, A Star!
