Private Screenings: Child Stars (2006)

**** (out of 4)

Darryl Hickman (LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN, MEN OF BOYS TOWN), Jane Withers (PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES, GIANT), Margaret O'Brien (MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, LITTLE WOMEN) and Dickie Moore (THE SQUAW MAN, OUT OF THE PAST) are the guests in this episode of Robert Osbornes series that airs on Turner Classic Movies. This is without question the best episode I've seen even though many people might not know the names that I've just written. This is a rather incredible group of interviews and I might go even further by saying it's one of the greatest documents on child actors. All four had different types of careers but they were a part of Hollywood during the Golden Era and hearing their stories was great fun. There's a masterful story told by Moore about his insulting of Cecil B. DeMille on the set of THE SQUAW MAN that the director would remember years later when they'd meet again. There's also some great stories told by Hickman about how mean John M. Stahl and Gene Tierney were on the set of LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN. Other great topics include the pressures of being a child star, dating in Hollywood, the side effects of fame and other stories covering various stars including Elizabeth Taylor. This episode lasts nearly a half hour longer than other entries and this time is greatly spent with so many great stories that you can't help but get some feelings on what it was like for these kids to grow up in another world.
