Dark-haired, dimple-cheeked, good-looking child player of the late silent and early sound days; good at sad scenes, he drew many a tear in his prime. His adult career was less successful and in his mid thirties, he forged a new career in public relations. He debuted at 18 months in The Beloved Rogue (1927) and chalked up almost 100 credits thereafter: Object: Alimony (1928), Passion Flower (1930), The Squaw Man (1931), Million Dollar Legs (1932), So Big (1932), Blonde Venus (1932), the title role in Oliver Twist (1933), Man's Castle (1933), Little Men (1934), Upperworld (1934), Peter Ibbetson (1935), So Red the Rose (1935), The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936), The Little Red Schoolhouse (1936), Madame X (1937), The Life of Emile Zola (1937), My Bill (1938), The Arkansas Traveler (1938), The Under-Pup (1939), The Blue Bird (1940), Sergeant York (1941), giving Shirley Temple a first screen kiss in Miss Annie Rooney (1942), Happy Land (1943), The Song of Bernadette (1943) and Youth Runs Wild (1944). After a break for military service, he made Build My Gallows High/Out of the Past (1947), Behind Locked Doors (1948), Bad Boy (1949), Killer Shark (1950), Eight Iron Men (1952) and The Member of the Wedding (1953), his last. Moore, who suffered from arthritis and dementia in later days, was married for the last 27 years of his life to his third wife, actress/singer Jane Powell.
