Dickie Moore (born John Richard Moore Jr.) made his acting and screen debut at the age of 18 months in the John Barrymore film The Beloved Rogue (1927). By the time he had turned ten he was a popular child star and had appeared in 52 films. Moore continued as a child star for many more years, and was the actor who gave Shirley Temple her first romantic screen kiss when that honor was bestowed upon him in 1942's Miss Annie Rooney. As with many child actors, once Moore got older the roles began to dry up. He made his final film in 1950, but was still in the public eye with the 1949 to 1955 television series Captain Video and His Video Rangers (1949). He then retired from acting for a new career in publicity. Moore died, age 89, in 2015.
