Actor
    (September 21, 1932- )
    Born in Waukegan, Illinois
    Birth name was Theodore Matthew Michael Kuhn Jr.
    Acted in 'Change of Heart,' 'A Doctor's Diary,' 'Juarez,' 'Gone With the Wind,' 'S.O.S Tidal Wave,' 'I Want a Divorce,' 'Bad Little Angel,' 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn,' 'Dick Tracy,' 'Red River,' 'Broken Arrow,' and 'Streetcar Named Desire'
    Best known for his role as Ashley and Melanie Wilkes' son, Beau Wilkes, in 'Gone With the Wind' (1939)
    Famous as one of the last surviving credited cast members of 'Gone With the Wind' (along with Olivia De Havilland, who ironically played his dying mother in the film)
    He is divorced.
    He made his film debut at the age of 2, playing the adopted infant son of Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell in 'Change of Heart' (1934).
    Predictably, his career was killed by puberty.
    He is a sought after presence by 'Windies' at 'Gone With the Wind' events, mainly because most of the other principal players have croaked, leaving them stuck with Melanie Wilkes' son who appeared on screen for roughly five minutes (and who will probably be the last surviving cast member).
    He had an even smaller role in 'Streetcar Named Desire,' ironically as a sailor giving directions to Vivien Leigh (it remains unclear as to whether or not Leigh recognized Kuhn from GWTW).
    His nickname was 'one-take Mickey,' but he took multiple takes to complete a scene with Clark Gable because he kept referring to him as 'Uncle Clark' instead of 'Uncle Rhett.'
    He was disappointed that Ted Turner didn't show up at the 75th Gone with the Wind Anniversary convention in Atlanta.
    He admits to only having watched 'Gone with the Wind' in its 4-hour entirety twice in his life (welcome to the club, man).
    He had to put up with Leslie Howard.
    He served in the Navy after leaving movies, and later found work with American Airlines.
    He had a memorable role in 'Red River' in which he draws on John Wayne's character and gets the crap beaten out of him.
    He received the Golden Boot Award for his work in westerns (2005).
    Unlike many child stars, he avoided scandal and went on to live quietly as a private citizen (likely due to having supportive, 'non-stage parents').
    Victor Fleming asked him how he would feel if his mother and dog were shot at the same time to secure tears for the Melanie Wilkes death scene, but it caused him to cry so uncontrollably that Fleming was forced to ask if it would make him feel better to hit him. The next day a photo surfaced of Kuhn gently slapping Fleming on the cheek.
    He didn't start attending 'Gone With the Wind' events until the late 1980s, mainly because he didn't see his role in the film as a big deal (only going at the behest of his wife).
