Dickie Moore (1932)


American actor, one of the last surviving actors to have appeared in silent film, known later in life as Dick Moore. A busy and popular actor during his childhood and youth, he appeared in over 100 films until the 1950s. Among his most notable appearances were the Our Gang series and films such as Oliver Twist, Blonde Venus, Sergeant York and Out of the Past.

In 1984, Moore published Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star: (But Don't Have Sex or Take the Car), a book about his and others' experiences as child actors. Moore owned a public relations firm, Dick Moore and Associates. Founded in 1966, it existed for 44 years. From 1988 until his death in 2015 Moore was married to the actress Jane Powell. The two met when Moore interviewed Powell for Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. The couple lived in Manhattan and Wilton, Connecticut.

In March 2013, Powell reported that Moore had arthritis and "bouts of dementia". He died at a hospice near Wilton on 7 September 2015, five days before his 90th birthday.
