Biography

From Wikipedia

John Michael "Jackie" Condon (March 25, 1918 –

October 13, 1977) was an American child actor who was a regular in the Our Gang

short series from 1922 until 1929, during the Pathé silent era.

Condon was born in March 1918 in Los Angeles, California. In

1919, he began his acting career by appearing in the film Jinx. By 1922, he

appeared in many silent films and later starred in the Our Gang comedies as

"Jackie".

When he joined the gang in 1921, he was the little tag-along

toddler of the gang who was usually put off by the older children but anxious

to be part of the action that the older members take place in. As he grew

older, his character developed into the all-American member of cast. He left

the series in 1928. Condon was part of the first original gang that was well

known to audiences that watched "Our Gang". He appeared in all of the

sixty-six Pathé silent comedies and twelve of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer silent

comedies before leaving the series. By the time of his departure, Condon had

appeared in seventy-eight of the shorts over a seven year term.

After he left Our Gang, Condon went back to public school

and graduated in 1936. He tried to return to acting during the 1950s, without

much success. He later worked at Rockwell International with fellow Our Gang

alumni and co-star Joe Cobb. In 1977, Condon died at age 59 from cancer. He was

cremated, and his ashes were scattered.
