Cat. #00158216: DICKIE JONES

Adorable 8x10-inch black and white still from Walt Disney's animated classic Pinocchio (1940), boldly signed in blue marker in-person at a film convention appearance in the 1990s. In very condition. Child actor Dickie Jones lent his voice to the titular marionette at the tender age of six, and was also memorable in a mixed bag of mischievous brat, street urchin and golden child roles in films like Kid Millions (1934), Queen of the Jungle (1935), the sci-fi flick Life Returns (1935), The Call of the Savage (1935), Our Gang Follies of 1936 (1935), Little Lord Fauntleroy (1936), Stella Dallas (1937), Our Gang Follies of 1938 (1937), Nancy Drew... Reporter (1939), The Man Who Dared (1939), Young Mr. Lincoln (1939), On Borrowed Time (1939), Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), Beware Spooks! (1939), Destry Rides Again (1939), The Outlaw (1943), Heaven Can Wait (1943), and The Adventures of Mark Twain (1944). In adulthood, the actor, who had been a prodigious horseman and trick roper in childhood, returned to his roots, appearing in a slew of B-level oaters and T.V. westerns, most notably "The Range Rider" (1951-1953), "The Gene Autry Show" (1950-1954), "Annie Oakley" (1954-1955), and "Buffalo Bill, Jr." (1955-1956). He thereafter retired to pursue a career in business.
