One of the Best Actors Ever


McDowall was one of the best, most endearing juvenile actors of the 1940s, then successfully transitioned to a thriving career as an adult performer. He was convincing in a variety of film and television roles, from silly comedies to crime dramas. He had a parallel career on the live stage in legitimate plays and musicals. There was nothing he couldn't do as an actor, and his presence always lifted the quality of whatever project he was involved in.
