Dickie Moore was born on September 12th, 1925 in Los Angeles, California with the birth name John Richard Moore Jr.  His career first began as a child actor, however unlike many child actors, he had no difficulty transitioning to becoming a working adult actor.
It began at the age of eighteen months when he made his debut in the film, "The Beloved Rogue" (1927) starring John Barrymore, Conrad Veidt, Marceline Day, Henry Victor and Slim Summerville.  Before he was even ten years old, he would add fifty two films to his resume and by the time he entered retirement, he had over 100 film and a number of television appearances such as, "Captain Video and His Video Rangers" (1949) starring Richard Coogan, Don Hastings and Al Hodge and "The Man Behind the Badge" (1954) starring Charles Bickford and Norman Rose.
He became most well remembered for his role in, "Miss Annie Rooney" (1942) also starring William Gargan and Guy Kibbee, where at the age of only fourteen, he had his first on screen kiss with the child actress, Shirley Temple.
Other roles he has been known for over his career was working on "The Little Rascals" between 1932 and 1933, "Blonde Venus" (1932) starring alongside Marlene Dietrich, Herbert Marshall, Cary Grant, Robert Emmett O'Connor, Sidney Toler, Kent Taylor, Dennis O'Keefe, Sterling Holloway, Hattie McDaniel, Gene Morgan and Clarence Muse, "Oliver Twist" (1933) co-starring Irving Pichel, Doris Lloyd and William 'Stage' Boyd, "Sergeant York" (1941) starring Gary Cooper, Walter Brennan, George Tobias, Ward Bond, Stanley Ridges, Noah Beery Jr., June Lockhart, Margaret Wycherly, Howard Da Silva, Joan Leslie and Tully Marshall, "Lux Video Theatre" (1952-1953) and "Eight Iron Men" (1952) starring Lee Marvin, Arthur Franz, Richard Kiley, James Griffith, Bonar Colleano and Barney Phillips.
Along with working as an actor he still completed high school and earned a college degree in journalism.  He also took a brief break from acting to serve during World War II and upon completing his military service he returned back to the industry with ease.
Even though he retired from film and television work on occasion he did work as a stage actor appearing on Broadway and also became involved working as an author and journalist for Equity magazine.       
In the mid 50's at the age of twenty nine, he decided to retire from the industry and pursued a career in public-relations working as an executive based out of New York City with his own film called, Dick Moore Associates.  Throughout his lifetime he has married a total of three times.  His first marriage was very brief to Pay Dempsey.  When this marriage came to an end he wed Eleanor Donhower Fitzpatrick in 1959.  This marriage also ended in divorce and he then wed his current wife, Jane Powell in 1988 and they remain married today and reside is Manhattan as well as Connecticut.
