American child actor most notable for appearing as Spud, the red-headed, freckle-faced bad boy and enemy of the gang in the Our Gang short subjects series from 1931 to 1932. Spud was characterized as the mama's-boy type who got away with everything and who also liked the girls a lot.

Bailey's most notable appearance was that of the spoiled, bratty stepbrother of Wheezer and Dorothy in Dogs Is Dogs (1931). In that short, he is nearly convinced by Stymie that ham and eggs can talk and is later pushed down a well by his own dog, Nero. Bailey left the Our Gang series in 1932 at the age of nine.

Bailey quietly left the film industry in 1940. Before retiring from his professional acting career at age 17, Bailey appeared in a few movies, including The Big Stampede (1932) with John Wayne, Too Many Parents (1936), and Young Tom Edison (1940) with Mickey Rooney.

He later earned his state civil engineering licence and worked as a civil engineer in Huntington Beach. He died of cancer on 6 August 1987, his 64th birthday, in Newport Beach, California.
