John Richard Moore, Jr. (September 12, 1925 – September 7, 2015)

The beloved former child star, known as Dickie Moore began his long career
in show business when he was only 11 months old, playing John Barrymore
as an infant in the 1927 silent film, "The Beloved Rogue." He would go on to
appear in more than 100 films over the next 30 years.

He is probably best known, however, for his appearances in the "Our Gang"
comedies (also known as "The Little Rascals" in 1932–1933 season ) and
as the boyfriend who gave Shirley Temple her first screen kiss in the 1942
film "Miss Annie Rooney."

In March 2013 Moore’s wife, actress Jane Powell, reported that Moore had
arthritis and "bouts of dementia".
