Shirley Jean Rickert

25 March 1926 to 6 February 2009

As a child, Rickert appeared in Hal Roach’s Our Gang series beginning with Helping Grandma (1931), before moving onto the Mickey McGuire shorts, starring a young Mickey Rooney. In adulthood, film success proved elusive, and despite uncredited roles in A pictures, her final performances were in Burlesque during the 1950s.
