Jackie Searl

Jackie Searl (John E. Searl) (July 7, 1920 - 29 April 1991) was a U.S. child actor who began performing on a local Los Angeles radio at the age of 3. His first movie role was in Daughters of Desire (1929) followed by 1930s Tom Sawyer, with Jackie Coogan and Mitzi Green, and by Huckleberry Finn in 1931.


Searl was especially known for playing bratty kids, and often had only small roles, such as "Robin Figg" in 1934's "Strictly Dynamite." Some of the most memorable films he appeared in include "Skippy, High Gear, Peck's Bad Boy, Great Expectations, "and "Little Lord Fauntleroy." In the 1940s he had some supporting character roles before disappearing for nearly a decade. In the early 1960s, Searl enjoyed a flurry of activity as a supporting villain on TV westerns, cop shows and sitcoms.
