Peggy Wood - 1892-1978
Her final screen appearance was as the gentle Mother Abbess in the 1965 film The Sound Of Music, for which she received an Academy Award nomination. She was thrilled to be in the movie although she knew she could no longer sing "Climb Ev'ry Mountain." She was dubbed by Margery McKay. In her memoir, "I Could Have Danced All Night", Marni Nixon who played Sister Sophia related that Peggy especially liked Margery McKay's voice because it sounded like she did when she was singing.
