Jackie butch jenkins

Jackie 'Butch' Jenkins (August 29, 1937 – August 14, 2001) was an American child actor, who had a brief film career during the 1940s. Born Jack Dudley Jenkins in Los Angeles, California, the son of actress Doris Dudley, Jenkins made his film debut at the age of six in The Human Comedy (1943) as Jack Jenkins after an MGM talent scout saw him playing on a Santa Monica beach and admired his high spirits. His performance as Mickey Rooney's younger brother (The Human Comedy) was well received and Jenkins was cast in a succession of films. He was given star billing for the 1946 film, Boy's Ranch. Inspired by the real-life ranch in Texas, which provided a home and education to underprivileged boys, MGM promoted the film as a successor to Boy's Town (1936). It co-starred James Craig who also appeared in Jenkins' next film Little Mr. Jim. Jenkins' other films included National Velvet (1944), Our Vines Have Tender Grapes (1945), The Bride Goes Wild (1948) and his final film Big City (1948).
