Jackie Coogan’s Club Swinging

Posted on Wednesday, December 17th, 2014 by John Wood

Jackie Coogan was one of the first kid movie stars. He appeared in several movies with Charlie Chaplin and many more throughout the 20’s.  This rare shot, taken in 1924 when he was around ten years old, shows young Mr. Coogan was also a fan of Indian club swinging, which is an ideal method of physical training for youngsters. Believe it or not, this young man with the Prince Valiant haircut grew
up to be Uncle Fester on the Addam’s family a couple decades later.
