Born December 16, 1921
Harry was born in Los Angeles, so he didn't have to go far to break into film work. After appearing in a few westerns, he hooked up with Roach at age five in 1927 to appear in his first of thirty-one Our Gang comedies.
His career didn't last much into the sound era,
as he was replaced at age seven after appearing in only five sound shorts. After
leaving Roach, Harry toured the vaudville circuit. Little or nothing is known
about Harry since then. As an interesting side note, Brad Farrell, Grand Sheik
of the A-Haunting We Will Go Sons of the Desert Tent in Ohio, conducted
an extensive search for Harry, and feels he may have found him living in
California. He relates the details of this search in a multi-part article in his
"Dante's Info" newsletter, concluding that Harry may be a possible "reverse
Rascal impersonator" -- an Our Gang actor who claims NOT to be one!
