TOMMY KELLY PART TWO

tkelly2TOMMY THE GREAT REVISITED

In my previous blog (March 18), I covered the death of once bright star Tommy Kelly who was Tom Sawyer in Selznick’s 1938 film.  I have been asked for a list of Tommy Kelly’s other appearances.  He began with two starring roles, but thereafter his career was one of small but always well acted parts.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer 1938
Peck’s Bad Boy with the Circus 1938
They Shall Have Music 1939
Gone with the Wind 1939
Curtain Call 1940
Irene 1940
Military Academy 1940
Gallant Sons 1940*
Nice Girl? 1941
Double Date 1941
Life Begins for Andy Hardy 1941
Mug Town 1943**
The Beginning or the End 1947
The Fabulous Texan 1947
He Walked by Night 1948
Battleground 1949
The Magnificent Yankee 1950

*Reviewed on Rick’s Flicks 6/19/2015
**Halliwell dates this film to 1942.

I am indebted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and to imdb for information about Tommy Kelly.
