Birthplace: Not Available
One of the peripheral Our Gang kids, handsome David Durand later played Danny in several East Side Kids potboilers from Monogram, only one of three actors to have appeared in both series. The son of Odette Durand, a well-known writer and poet, David had been something of a child prodigy at the age of two, when he became known as radio's "Little Boy Blue." Film offers started pouring in in 1926 and Durand's popularity only grew in the '30s, when he proved to be one of Hollywood's more endearing child actors. In 1940, he replaced Noah Beery, Jr. in Columbia's Glove Slingers boxing short subjects but left the series to replace a military-bound Bobby Jordan in the East Side Kids films. Retired, Durand spent his finally years in a Illinois rest home. He died in 1998 at the age of 76.
