When a movie director would tell him, "I need a child for a movie. Do you have one?", J.C. was known to typically respond: "What size and what sex?".
All nine of his children appeared in films and appeared in more than 1,000 movies. Their family home was in an ideal spot - in Edendale, California, an early movie-studio enclave north of the Echo Park lake. See more
