9780060153496: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star (but don't have sex or take the car)

Dickie Moore is best known for appearing in The Little Rascals, but he also graced films like Blonde Venus, So Big, and Sergeant York. He wasn't the biggest of the child stars, but he certainly mingled with great stars and suffered the consequences of having fame at such a young age. This book is not a biography although Moore does relate some childhood experiences and lightly grazes on moments from later in life, always relating them to the effect stardom had on them. The book is filled with interviews from countless other child stars like Natalie Wood, Edith Fellows, Shirley Temple, Donald O'Connor, Jane Powell, Mickey Rooney, Jackie Coogan, etc etc. Each provide insight into the main theme of the book: how are child stars supposed to have "rosebuds" (a symbol from the film Citizen Kane) when they didn't have normal childhoods? The book is highly entertaining and it takes an interesting slant on delving into some of the brightest stars of the Depression era and later. It is by no means an auto-biography or a monumental study; it is simply a therapeutic exploration by a famous child star.
