Dickie Moore, child star of the 1930s, dies at age 89

NEW YORK (AP) Dick ``Dickie'' Moore, a saucer-eyed child star of the 1930s who appeared in ``Our Gang'' comedies, gave Shirley Temple her first screen kiss and was featured in many major Hollywood productions, has died. He was 89.

Helaine Feldman, a senior staff member at Dick Moore Associates Inc., confirmed that Moore died Monday in a Connecticut hospital.


Moore was a Wilton resident.

While not as famous as Temple or Mickey Rooney, Moore was a veteran of dozens of films, many of them top-drawer productions directed by such greats as Cecil B. DeMille (''The Squaw Man''), Ernst Lubitsch (''Heaven Can Wait'') and Josef von Sternberg (''Blonde Venus'').
