   Charles talks with actress Margaret O'Brien, who was only 7 years old when she starred in the 1944 classic, "Meet Me in St. Louis."  Margaret explains why her little dog is responsible for her discovery by Hollywood, and why she chose the name "Margaret" instead of her given name for her acting career. She also talks about working with director Vincent Minnelli and her co-star Judy Garland.  Margaret became one of Hollywood's youngest and highest paid actresses as a result of her acting in "Meet Me in St.Louis."  Part 1 of a 2-part interview.
