Theodore Matthew Michael Kuhn Jr.

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Theodore Matthew Michael Kuhn Jr. was born in Waukegan, Illinois back in 1932 to Theodore Sr., and Pearl.  He joined the Navy in 1951 working as an aircraft electrician. Prior to joining the Navy he was an active on-screen child star in movies.  He left the industry in 1956.  He worked for American Airlines from 1965-95 until his retirement.

He currently is living in Naples, Florida where he volunteers four hours per week at a local hospital.

What you may not know about Theodore as a child he acted in several films I hope you have heard of Red River, Broken Arrow, A tree Grows in Brooklyn and Gone With The Wind to name a few.  Following the death of Dame Olivia de Havilland, he is the last surviving member of Gone With The Wind.  He is also credited as the only actor to share screen time with Vivien Leigh in each of her Oscar-winning performances.

Your day is worthwhile when you make someone smile, so give the free gift of a smile today.

Good Morning, James,

Now I'm waiting for Barbara's photo of him because the name doesn't ring a bell. Thank you for all your interesting posts!

Good morning, James... films that I've seen, but an actor whose name is not familiar to me. So nice to hear a story of a child actor who "survived" into a rational adulthood.

Good morning James,

As "Gone With the Wind" is a favorite, I probably saw him but do not recognize him!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

I have never heard of him but since my Mom was such a big fan of Gone with the Wind, she might know of him.

Good morning James - that is really interesting.  I wouldn't know him otherwise but glad Barbara Todaro shared a picture.

I'm familiar with these films but the name of the actor is an unknown. No surprise, I'm far from an expert on the Hollywood scene.

Hi James- I've seen Gone with the Wind several times but even after seeing his face, I don't remember him. I'll have to watch the film again.

Hi James, 

Another piece of trivia.  The movie "Broken Arrow" had many scenes shot in Sedona which helped to make the red rocks famous.  There is a trail, and a neighborhood named after that area where many Hollywood movies were made.

Funny, when I watch Gone With the Wind I wonder if a movie like that could be made today?
