GUESS WHO?

I sometimes have trouble with posting pics from different sources, so I posted several, hoping that some would show up.  This young fellow also did the voice of a famous animated character.

Yes, it's Dickie Jones, later Dick Jones when he was a regular on "The Range Rider".  He also starred as "Buffalo Bill Jr." on TV in the fifties.  He was an excellent young horseman as a child and was discovered by Hoot Gibson.  He played Bogie's son in "The Black Legion".  He was in "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington".  Here he is with Cliff Edwards doing the voice of Pinocchio while cliff voiced Jiminy Cricket:

Thank you, Miles. Now here's a young Miss who's gone on to bigger and better things in her career. She's equally adept at dramas and comedies - and not too shabby to look at, either. If you can name her, you can name her "fella" and why they're costumed.

Yes, Baby Bumstead, Baby Dumpling, Alexander Bumstead, call this cutie any of those names it's actor Larry Simms. Blondie and Dagwood's son.

Knew this one would drive some of you guys nutty, recognizing him but trying to remember what films you knew him from :D

Good job Kid, and thanks fred for the guess.

Yes, it's Ted Donaldson.  I just found out recently that "Neely" was a nickname for Cornelius.  He was also in "Once Upon A Time" with Cary Grant.  I was going to just post his photo as an old man and have everyone guess, but I thought that might be unfair, since he did not have much of an adult career.

You'll notice that he seems to favor checked shirts.  Lavender, it's your turn.

There's one other thing I learned about Ted Donaldson.  He played the part of Bud in the radio version of "Father Knows Best".

The Radio Cast of Father Knows Best, from left to right: Norma Jean Nilsson (as Kathy),Ted Donaldson (as Bud), Robert Young (as Jim), Rhoda Williams (as Betty), and June Whitley Taylor (as Margaret).  The audition show was called “Meet the Hendersons” (12/20/1948) but by the time the radio show premiered on August 25, 1949, the family name was changed to the one we all know and love “The Andersons.” The show aired on Thursday evenings through March 25, 1954.

 

Yes, several popular TV shows in the fifties originated at radio programs.

 

It's still Lavender's turn.

I shure wish sometimes that I was born about 10 years earlier. I would like to have grown up in that prosperous era after WWII. But then.. I'd be hurtin' now, boy!

:P

Yes, that sure is Billy Chapin mr6. Definitely his most famous role was in NIGHT OF THE HUNTER and he was excellent. He's Lauren Chapin's (Cathy in Father Knows Best) real life brother. Thanks and it's your thread :)

            I'm pretty sure I know this guy. If I'm right, I've seen several

                of his "younger" shows and films in the past 2 weeks.

 

I'll let others have a shot at this one

No takers, eh? 

 

I believe this is Johnny Sheffield - aka: Boy, from the Tarzan movies (and his own).
