Peggy Maley as Veda Pinelli is GORGEOUS
I'm only going to comment on Peggy Maley. This actress appears only twice in the film but her "Veda Pinelli" really stands out. She is enthralling as she possesses an odd sort of tough, working-class glamor. Peggy Maley looks luscious and delightfully feminine in her silky housecoat and later in an average dress set off by clattering bracelets. She even assumes a kind of movie star glamour when she dons sunglasses to cover the black eye she gets from her husband (never seen in the film) for "stepping out." I watched this movie a second time only to see Peggy Maley as the enticing and vulnerable Veda Pinelli.

Peggy Maley may be best known for delivering the feeder line, "Whaddya rebelling against, Johnny?" to Marlon Brando in "The Wild One" but "The Midnight Story" may be her best and most vibrant work.

Here's to you, Peggy Maley!
