-Comment: Little child star Frankie Darro (1917-1976) in typical western clothes. Beige or similar light colored shirt and dark, probably black pants. According to a colorized lobby card he’s shown in a light blue shirt, beige pants and an olive hat.

I found this by coincidence.

Silent movie, 40 minutes. Produced by Film Booking Offices of America (FBO). Available on DVD, VHS and stream, not sure about the quality.

I haven’t seen the complete movie just some few and short clips (in bad quality on YouTube). So I can’t say much more yet.

He looks even younger. My earliest entry yet. Looks like a typical (funny) movie of it’s time. He also starred in other even earlier westerns 3 or 4 years ago.

Rating 2-3 for now. A woman in bib overalls (other blog rating 3).
