Summary "Jackie Coogan: The World's Boy King is the first study of his life to be published and reveals the little known and even less understood private life of this child star and his completely dysfunctional family. This biography is also the rare instance when one major child star (the former Baby Peggy) employs her own hard-won insight in exploring the career and family woes of the most famous child star of them all - Jackie Coogan."--BOOK JACKET
