Dick Jones

Biography

American actor who achieved success as a child actor and as a young adult, especially in B-Westerns and television. Jones is probably best known as the voice of Pinocchio in the 1940 Walt Disney film "Pinocchio."

He was a prodigious horseman from infancy, billed at the age of four as the "World's Youngest Trick Rider and Trick Roper." His good looks, energy and pleasant voice landed him parts in Hollywood, both in low-budget Westerns and in more substantial productions. Although often uncredited, he was usually known as Dickie Jones.

In 1939, he appeared with Jimmy Stewart in "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." He served in the Army in Alaska during the final months of World War II.

Gene Autry, who before the war had cast Jones in several westerns, put him back to work in films and particularly in television, on programs produced by Autry's company. Now billed as Dick Jones, the handsome young man starred in his own series, "Buffalo Bill, Jr." (1955), which ran for forty-two episodes in syndication. His last acting role was as Cliff Fletcher in the 1965 film "Requiem for a Gunfighter."

In 2000, Dick Jones was named one of the Disney Legends.
