In an era when aspiring actors desperately sought studio connections,
young Dickie Jones did not. Possessor of a load of multiple talents and
under the guidance of his mother, he moved from studio to studio –
dancing, acting, riding. Dickie had that most desirable gift for every
actor – believability.
In his independence, Dickie walked off with one of the plum juvenile roles of his time – the voice of Pinocchio for Walt Disney. As he geared up to sing “No Strings on Me” he might have been singing his personal theme song.
In NO STRINGS: IN SEARCH OF DICKIE JONES, Ann Snuggs has shared Dick’s stories from his days on the silver screen in combination with her research on the films and people involved. Come search for the real Dick “Dickie” Jones.
