    (October 26, 1914-March 1, 1984)
    Appeared in 'A Day's Pleasure (1919),' 'The Kid (1921),' 'Tom Sawyer (1930)' and 'Huckleberry Finn (1931)'
    Portrayed Uncle Fester on the original 'Addams Family' TV series (1964-1966)
    He was married to Betty Grable for only three years, and divorced three other times.
    After divorcing Betty Grable, he retired from movies, returning only occasionally (1939).
    Most people do not remember his childhood career and only remember him as Uncle Fester.
    He was born into the entertainment business, and grew up in the spotlight.
    As a child, he co-starred with Charlie Chaplin in a couple of films.
    He served in the US Army during World War II.
    He is said to be the youngest 'self made' millionaire in history.
    When he wanted the money that he made as a child star in the 20's his mother and stepfather refused and Jackie filed suit for the $4 million that he had made. Under California Law at the time, he had no rights to the money he made as a child and he was awarded only $126,000 in 1939. Because of the public outcry, the California Legislature passed 'The Child Actors Bill' aka 'Coogan Act', which would set up a trust fund for any child actor and protect his earnings.
