Film actor Jack Hanlon died on Dec. 13 in Las Vegas, Nev., his family has revealed. The "Our Gang" actor was 96.

Hanlon was a child star who acted in films in the late '20s and early '30s. He's best known for his work in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" films "The Glorious Fourth" and "Olympic Gangs," but he also appeared in "talkies" before retiring from acting at age 16. Among his most famous movies are "The Shakedown," "The General" and "Big Money."

"He was absolutely the sweetest, most charming man," Hanlon's niece, Wendy Putnam Park, told The Associated Press. "He loved talking about being in the movies if you brought the subject up. He loved sharing stories about being in them."

After his time in Hollywood, Hanlon went on to become an Army paratrooper and a mover for Allied Van Lines. Prior to his death, he had lived in Las Vegas for 18 years. »
