Film expert & TCM movie host Robert Osbourne gathered four of the busiest child actors from the 1940s: lovely Margaret O'Brien, bubbly Jane Withers, serious Darryl Hickman (Dwayne's older brother) & the classic kid, Dickie Jones.
Each had dozens and dozens of films (and later TV appearances) to their credit and each continued to appear on-screen past their adolescence and well into adulthood. They saw Hollywood change as the dictatorial-yet-protective and nurturing "star system" died out and the era of independent management was introduced.
This four-some talks about all of it, including who were the good guys and who weren't.
Osbourne did little except introduce a question and then sit back and let the round table begin as classic memory after memory was related. For any film buff this 90-minutes of inviting, involving introspection and reminisces was simply wonderful.
