Freddie Bartholomew

Freddie Bartholomew

Highest Rated: 100% David Copperfield (1935)

Lowest Rated: 60% Sepia Cinderella (1947)

Birthday: Mar 28, 1924

Birthplace: Dublin, Ireland

Curly-haired Hollywood child star whose earnest presence, refined British diction and angelic looks established him as a boxoffice favorite in the 1930s and 40s. After a few minor roles in British films, the ten-year-old was signed by MGM to star as Dickens's hero in David O. Selznick's production of "David Copperfield" (1935). He went on to play Greta Garbo's son in "Anna Karenina" (1935) and followed up with his two most popular roles: as the American boy who learns he is the heir to a dukedom in "Little Lord Fauntleroy" (1936) and as a pampered rich brat who is rescued and educated by rough fishermen in Rudyard Kipling's adventure yarn, "Captains Courageous" (1937).
