That kid was really annoying...


And the way they dressed him and his hair! Good god, what a hoot. But mostly, we just cringed and laughed every time he was onscreen. I think the gangsters were exhausted just putting up with his slow, annoying ass. He definitely wasn't worth jumping out a window for or ruining a perfectly good vintage silk nightgown! lol

He made Bogart seem sympathetic.

Another insufferable tyke is the one Robert Stack goes to such great lengths to save in "The Last Voyage".


I love kids but they are naturally appealing. When they are made to purposely be "cute" they are truly annoying.

Oh thank you for telling I am not a total grumpy git for finding the kid insufferable .. and that others did as well.

I did not care for that kid, funny what directors and casting agents think is cute and endearing. The kid actor that always made me grit my teeth was that little boy with the droopy eyes and big freckles. He was in Our Vines Have Tender Grapes- alongside Margaret O'Brien.

I find the kid borderline annoying--in other words, tolerable. And I actually like the mop of hair. However, I have certainly found some child characters insufferable, especially the little boy in the original Blob film (1958).

The director seemed to have the kid acting younger than he was. The hair wasn’t as annoying to me as the clothes ... and the fact that he never aged even though it seemed at least two years went by.
