The Hollywood of the 1930s and 1940s was the heyday of the child star, those famous youngsters who brought joy and happiness to millions of moviegoers around the world. This website is dedicated to one of the most talented child stars to ever appear in front of the movie cameras.

Someone who, sadly, does not receive as much attention today as her peers do...the one and only Bonita Granville. This page is not affiliated with or approved by Bonita Granville Wrather's family or estate, nor any organization which employed or is associated with her. It was constructed by a fan, who wishes to create a resource for Bonita Granville's fans everywhere

In 1938-39 came the movies she is now best remembered for, playing the bright and feisty detective/reporter Nancy Drew in the Nancy-Drew-series. She also played against Mickey Rooney in a few Andy Hardy-movies. However, she never got any real breakthrough and she retired from acting in the middle of the 1950s, although she produced the TV series Lassie.
