Billy Lee appeared in some 39 movies from 1934 until 1943. His first significant role was in Wagon Wheels when he was just four years old, though he is probably best remembered for his fine performance in The Biscuit Eater. In addition to being an actor, he was also a singer and dancer, appearing and singing with Bobby Breen in Make A Wish.
