Biography

Jackie Coogan, born as John Leslie Coogan was born October 26, 1914 to John Coogan Jr. and Lillian Dolliver in Los Angeles, California.[1]

He starred in The Kid with Charlie Chaplin making him "one of the first child stars in film history."

As a child actor he sued his mother and stepfather over his film earnings which put into effect the first known "legal protection for the earnings of child performers," also known as the Coogan Act.

Jackie enlisted into the US Army in 1941 but after the attack on Pearl Harbor he requested a transfer to the Army Air Forces as he had flying experience.

Coogan was married four times, and had four children.

He first married Betty Grable on November 20, 1937 in Los Angeles. [2]

Jackie died on March 1, 1984 in Los Angeles.[3]

At his request, Coogan's funeral was open to the public and he was buried at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City.[4] His star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is located on the 1700 block of Vine Street, just south of Hollywood Boulevard.
