Sadly Neglected Performances by Children

107 posts in this topic

Gifted child performers like Dean Stockwell, Bobby Driscoll, Jackie "Butch" Jenkins and Margaret O'Brien can add immeasurably to the texture of a film.

Although I couldn't find pictures of them, Jerry Hunter as Randolph Foster and Buddy Howard as Jo-Jo Hoffenpepper in 1948's "A Date With Judy".

Philip Needs and Loretta Parry in Hand in Hand (1961)

I seem to recall seeing this film on the old "Children's Film Festival" which aired on CBS on Sunday afternoons.  Fran Allyson introduced the pictures (with her pals, Kukla and Ollie).  If I'm remembering correctly (without consulting IMDB or Wikipedia), the picture for the U.S. audience was titled "John and Julie"?

Not in my neighbourhood in the Bronx, where it was definitely Hand in Hand. Maybe elsewhere?

His illness - feigned or otherwise - is probably a response to his mother's unstable condition.
