Jerry_Tucker_1936   A former child actor who got his start in Our Gang / The Little Rascals movies of the 1930s now has his own Long Island street. Officials named a portion of St. Ann’s Avenue in Copiague in honor of 89-year old Jerry Schatz.

   Schatz went by the stage name Jerry Tucker (right). He acted alongside Shirley Temple (in Captain January) and Clark Gable during the 1930s and 1940s. He also appeared as one of Mother Peep’s kids in the 1934 Laurel and Hardy feature film March of the Wooden Soldiers.

   Jerry joined the Navy during World War II. He also served during the Korean conflict. That’s when his career in Hollywood came to a close. He moved to Copiague after the war with his wife and worked as an engineer.

   Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer called the US Navy vet one of our own as officials unveiled Jerry Schatz Place on Tuesday. What a wonderful local honor.
