Manny P. here…DickieMoore

   Dickie Moore was a popular child actor. He was one of the last surviving actors to appear in silent films. He’s also famous for giving Shirley Temple her second on-screen smooch in Miss Annie Rooney.

   Besides appearing in major feature films, he was featured as a regular in the Our Gang series in 1932. In addition, Moore is best known for his portrayal of the title character in the 1933 adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist and Marlene Dietrich’s son in Blonde Venus.

   Dickie had roles in Madame X, The Squaw Man, Disorderly Conduct, Million Dollar Legs, Man’s Castle, The Story of Louis Pasteur, The Life of Emile Zola, Sergeant York, Heaven Can Wait, The Song of Bernadette, and Out of the Past. Moore later performed on Broadway and on television.

    He went on to teach and write books about acting, edit Equity News, and produce an Oscar-nominated short film, The Boy and the Eagle. He owned a public relations firm for 44 years, and since 1988, he was married to the actress Jane Powell. In March 2013, Powell reported that her husband had arthritis and bouts of dementia.

   Dickie Moore was two days shy of his 90th birthday.
