Happy birthday, Frankie Darro  (December 22nd, 1917 - December 25th, 1976)
Born into a show-business family - his parents were circus aerialists - Frankie Darro appeared in his first film at age six. Due to his small size and youthful appearance, he played teenagers well into his 20s. Always a physical performer, Darro often did his own stunts, many times out of necessity - his small stature made it difficult to find stunt doubles his size. In 1933 he played the lead as a troubled teen in a major film for Warner Brothers :”Wild Boys Of The Road”.  That same year, he played a troubled youth in the James Cagney classic, “The Mayor Of Hell”.
