Mini Tribute: Child Actor Jackie Cooper

Born September 15, 1922, Child Actor Jackie Cooper!

Jackie Cooper was the First Child Actor ever to receive an Oscar Nomination (Best Actor Nominee for Skippy in 1931). He remained the youngest Oscar Nominee (at age 9) in any category until Justin Henry’s Nomination at age 8 for Best Supporting Actor in Kramer vs Kramer in 1980.

I, however, know him best from the Our Gang series, and of course as Dink in The Champ (1931).
