"I wonder what ever became of.....?" Here's the answer to that question about more than 100 child actors, all famous stars in their early years. Starting with Master William Henry Betty, born in 1791, and ending with Michael Jackson, the book includes brief life stories of such well-known icons as Lotta Crabtree, Elsie Janis, Jackie Coogan, Baby Peggy, Our Gang's Alfalfa and Buckwheat, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Rose Marie, Shirley Temple, Elizabeth Taylor, Roddy McDowall, Margaret O'Brien, Natalie Wood, and many more. Fans of silent movies or of Hollywood's Golden Age in the 1940s and 1950s, Broadway theatre patrons, and television viewers in the 1950s and 1960s will enjoy the fascinating personal stories and ultimate fates of these tiny troupers. Mini-biographies with pictures of the child stars describe their careers-and then show how they fared in their adult lives, some continuing with great success and others plummeting to disaster.
