Bobby Driscoll

I feel down a rabbit hole on-line today, as I do most days. It lead me to Bobby Driscoll, who stared in many films, but is best known by me for the Disney film Treasure Island, and as the voice of Peter Pan. He won a juvenille Academy Award (a category the no longer exists), and if memory serves, was a terrific actor. His contract was eventually terminated by Disney due to his bad acne. He fell into drugs, and The Factory, dying at 31 and buried in an unmarked grave in Potters Field in New York.
It's really a sad story, and while its one that ended years ago, it still makes me sad to learn of it.
