Claude Jarman Jr. promotional portrait

Bashful 11-year-old Claude Jarman, Jr. was plucked from his fifth grade Nashville classroom to play alongside Gregory Peck in the 1946 movie The Yearling, his most memorable role. He made a half-dozen more movies as a teenager then went on to work behind-the-scenes and in other fields. He worked much of his adult life in San Francisco, California and his career included being Director of Cultural Affairs for The City of San Francisco and manager of The San Francisco Opera House.
