Lovely Portrait Photos of a Child Dickie Moore in the 1930s

Born 1925 as John Richard Moore Jr. in Los Angeles, California, American actor Dickie Moore was one of the last surviving actors to have appeared in silent film.

A busy and popular actor during his childhood and youth, Moore appeared in over 100 films until the early 1950s. Among his most notable appearances were the Our Gang series and films such as Oliver Twist, Blonde Venus, Sergeant York, Out of the Past, and Eight Iron Men.

In 1984, Moore published Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star (But Don’t Have Sex or Take the Car), a book about his and others’ experiences as child actors. Moore owned a public relations firm, Dick Moore and Associates. Founded in 1966, it existed for 44 years.

From 1988 until his death in 2015, Moore was married to the actress Jane Powell. The two met when Moore interviewed Powell for Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. The couple lived in Manhattan and Wilton, Connecticut.

Moore died at a hospice in Wilton, Connecticut in 2015, five days before his 90th birthday. Take a look at these lovely photos to see portraits of a child Dickie Moore in the 1930s.
