Actor. As a child performer of the 1930s, he is best remembered for his brief stint as Wally in Hal Roach's "Our Gang" (aka "The Little Rascals") films. Born Walton Algernon Albright, Jr. in Burbank, California, he made his acting debut at age four. He was naturally blond but his trademark tousled locks depended on a curling iron. his character appealingly combined waifish looks with a well-meaning, take-charge personality. His first "Our Gang" appearance was a cameo in "Choo-Choo!" (1932), and in 1934 producer Roach hired him to replace Dickie Moore as a regular cast member. He stayed with the series for only five films before returning to more lucrative work in big-studio features. He was the leader of the Little Rascals in "Hi'-Neighbor!" (1934), "For Pete's Sake!" (1934), and "The First Round-Up" (1934), while in "Honky Donkey" (1934) and "Washee Ironee" (1934) he played a rich child who happily joins the Gang. His Hollywood career faded out by the early 1940s, though he returned for an uncredited bit as a motorcyclist in "The Wild One" (1953), his only adult role. His nearly 60 other motion picture credits include "The Case of Lena Smith" (1929), "East Lynne" (1931), "Thirteen Women" (1932), "Ann Vickers" (1933), "The Count of Monte Cristo" (1934), "Black Fury" (1935), "Captains Courageous" (1937), "The Grapes of Wrath" (1940), and "Johnny Apollo" (1940). After serving in the United States Navy during World War II, he founded his own trucking company and made a fortune shipping produce throughout California. He was also an avid sportsman and in 1957 he won the Men's National Track and Ski Championship. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
