American child actor from the age of three who played with Hollywood greats in top films before he was 10. His debut came in "Gallant Lady" (1933), with the "Our Gang" series starting the following year. He played in "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves" (1943), and "The Al Jolson Story" (1946).
His first bout with the law occurred in the form of a drunk-driving arrest on 20 December 1948. He eloped on 29 September 1949 and divorced on 31 May 1950, when he joined the Naval Reserves. He eventually remarried and had a son.
In 1954, he was arrested twice, for passing bad checks and for carrying a gun. On 20 September 1958, he overdosed on narcotics and recovered. In January 1960, he was given six months probation for the child abuse of his step-daughter.
For the next several years, he had no film work and general hard luck. He entered the Hollywood Rest Home on 6 May 1968 at the age of 38. Four days later, he was found dead in his bed following a serious beating.
