Jackie Morrow

  1. Freddie Bartholomew, David Copperfield, 1934.      His agent  tried hard – even took out a Hollywood Filmograph ad to spread the news that Jackie was in contention for the titular Dickensian role. No, cried LB’s  son-in-law, producer David O Selznick, this David must be British!  He next rejected thousands of kids (including the studio’s  top choice of The Champ star, Jackie Cooper, plus Florida’s David Holt and San Diego’s Morrow), while awaiting Bartholomew to leave  London for LA.   And instant, global stardom. He was soon Hollywood’s highest paid kiddy. At $2,500 a week.
