Marcia Mae Jones

  1. Ann Gillis, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, 1937.   Like Topsy, she growed – and had to give up Becky Thatcher.  Producer David O Selznick kept her aboard as Mary Sawyer.   Jones made her film debut at age two and was one of the few 30s’ kid stars still working into the 80s  – all the way from Shirley Temple to The Way We Were.  Gillis was supposed to be the Warner Bros’ Temple. Never happened (there was only one Shirley).  Her final role was as Gary Lockwood’s mother in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
