Claude Jarman Jr.
Claim to fame: Reader David Costlow emails "I was researching the life (and death if any) on Claude Jarman Jr. of the 1946 movie the Yearling fame. Not much available on this child star who reportedly had no acting experience before his Oscar Winning Role in The Yearling."
 
 
Where are they now? His family moved to California after The Yearling where he attended the MGM studio school. After failing to duplicate his Yearling success in follow-up movies he returned to his hometown Nashville, Tennessee to finish high-school before going on to pre-law at Venderbilt University.
After university he served in the Navy for three years before returning to Hollywood in 1959 where he built a minor career behind the scenes as a producer and director, including a term as the Director of Cultural Affairs for the City of San Fransisco

He married 3 times, 1959, 1968 & 1985, and has 6 children by his three wives.

In the mid 1960's, a group of people walked up my parents driveway in a relatively exclusive area of the Napa Valley. In talking with them, one of the people introduced himself as Claude Jarman. Apparently he had purchased a house in the area, and was out for a walk with a group of friends when he happened upon our house. I remember immediately seeing the resemblence between this man, and the character in the film, "The Yearling." He stayed in the neighborhood for several years, and would commute to San Francisco where he held a job in city government.

Just saw The Yearling with my wife and son on
dvd
Gregory Peck played himself as always (and got an Academy Award nomination for his trouble), but Claude carried the show
No wonder they created a juvenile Academy Award for him!

Must have been in the early 50's that Claude was playing football for the school he attended in Nashville. His school played our DuPont football team in Old Hickory, Tennessee. We girls gathered around for autographs which he readily gave us. I always wished I had kept mine safe but, alas, I lost it I guess when our house burned some years later. A special memory even without the autograph.

I'm sitting here at 7:30 AM on July 25th2014, watching Rio Grande. I knew immediately that the young man was someone I recognized, so I ran the name Jarman Jr and sure enough, The Yearling. Wow, I've seen Claude in a few movies and certainly am glad he is only 9 years older than I. God bless you Claude.

Watching "The Yearling". What fine acting and what a gentle film. Is Mr Jarmon still living?

"Intruder in the Dust" from 1949, the year I was born, is a very good movie - even without Gregory Peck, star of the similarly themed movie "To Kill a Mockingbird." Checked out the cast to reveal Claude Jarman, Jr. as "Chick" the young boy who overcame his own racism to help an innocent black man. What a fine strong actor! Apparently he's an equally fine human being, now 80 years old.

I worked for Claude Jarman Jr for a number of years at his travel agency in San Francisco "Jarman Travel". We had a rather high end client base due to his connections. He kept his Oscar in his office and we all took turns having pictures taken with it when he was out of the office. Occasionally other past stars of Hollywood would walk into the office for a visit. He was a great boss, always pleasant and fair

I did a service call at his travel agency office many years ago on Montgomery Street in San Francisco. He seemed to be a great guy!

I saw Claude Jarman on Sunday afternoon at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley after the showing of Intruder in the Dust. I believe this was his second film. http://bampfa.org/event/intruder-dust-0
