Primarily a child actor, Mickey Kuhn ended his acting career during the late 1950s with a series of television appearances on "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and thereafter worked in the commercial passenger aviation industry until his retirement. His first major role was in "Gone With the Wind" as "Beau Wilkes." Kuhn played Junior in "Dick Tracy" for R-K-O in which the comic strip detective battled the serial killer "Split Face" (Mike Mazurki). His most notable film noir performance was as the youthful "Walter O'Neil" in "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" in which he played opposite Janis Wilson as the young "Martha Ivers." Their adult counterparts were played by Kirk Douglas and Barbara Stanwyck respectively.
I seem to recall that in his golden years, Kuhn made occasional appearances at film festivals when his movies were being screened.
