History: Born George Ruud Hjorth to a Norwegian mother and Danish father, George Ernst moved to California when he was two and a half years old. He became a child actor in Silent Films when he was just five years old and eventually starred in the Our Gang Shorts, going on to appear in over 60 films between 1930 and 1942. According to his bio on the series, Brad Meltzer's Lost History, George also worked as a photographer on behalf of the United states Army during World War Two and secretly caught footage of the German sidelines of D-Day, footage that has since been misplaced or lost. George passed away at the age of 88 in 2009; he is survived by his son.
