History: Jack McHugh was a child actor who appeared in over 300 Juvenile short comedies, including the Buster Brown series, and the Big Boy series. The latter series was originally conceived as a series solely for McHugh, but due to the popularity of actor Malcolm W. Sabiston, his role was reduced, and eventually he was dropped from the series. He appeared in one Our Gang short, 1930's Shivering Shakespeare, as a tough kid. After his stint in short subjects, McHugh continued to have bit parts in feature films. His last known film appearance was in the 1939 film Boys' Reformatory.
He died on January 13, 1983 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
