Young Joe Cobb
24 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Joe Cobb is most interesting to watch. He was the youngest of the bunch and very precocious. He must have been something in real life. A very smart child who probably was able to follow the director's directions well. He may have been a little bit of a bully and bossy with a loud sassy mouth. I can imagine him causing some trouble and mischief with the other boys on the set. Too bad his career ended early but he ended up working on planes during WWII and stayed with it till he retired in 1981. I wonder what he looked like in later years and if he remained a heavy person. He reminded me of a young Jackie Gleason. Perhaps Jackie Gleason saw these films as a child himself.
