Manny P. here…

larplogoblue07   Thanks to Don Barrett of LARadio.com for reprinting a story that ran a year ago regarding Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History’s first library addition. And, it was the very prestigious Margaret Herrick Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Since then, I’ve added 38 more libraries from across the country including the important shelves of the American Film Institute and the Writers Guild Foundation. I’m thrilled to celebrate this memorable anniversary.

johnnysheffield6thumb   One of the wonderful (but almost forgotten) child character actors of Hollywood’s Golden Age has died. Johnny Sheffield (right) passed away from an apparent heart attack on October 15th at his home in Chula Vista. Sheffield is best known for his role as “Boy” in the Tarzan series of motion pictures, which starred Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O’Sullivan. He also apperared in a number of movies as Bomba, the Jungle Boy in the 1950’s.

   His first role was in Babes in Arms in 1939 with Mickey Rooney. He retired from show business in 1955. Johnny Sheffield was 79.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
