Jackie Searl

Highest Rated: 100% The Paleface (1948)
Birthday: Jul 7, 1921
Birthplace: Not Available
Juvenile actor Jackie Searl began performing on local Los Angeles radio at the age of 3. Jackie came to film prominence in the early-talkie era, nearly always playing a nasty, phlegmatic brat, none more nasty or phlegmatic than Sidney Sawyer in 1930's Tom Sawyer and 1931's Huckleberry Finn. In response to overwhelming demand from his fans, Searl was teamed with his female counterpart, hoydenish young Jane Withers, in three mid-1930s films. However, the anticipated sparks never flew on screen, possibly because Searl and Withers, both pleasant and well-behaved in real life, got along too well offscreen. Even at the height of his popularity, Searl (and his family) never pocketed more than $4000 a year; thus, he sought out other forms of employment after serving in World War II. He made a brief comeback as a film character actor in 1948 before disappearing for nearly a decade into the "civilian" world. In the early 1960s, Jack Searl (Jackie no more), his trademarked weaselly facial features augmented by a stubbly chin and bald dome, enjoyed a flurry of activity as a supporting villain on TV westerns, cop shows and situation comedies.
