John Howard Davies (1939-2011)

  1. Bobby Driscoll, Treasure Island, 1949.     Walt Disney’s original idea was to reunite David Lean’s Oliver Twist couple of young Davies and Robert Newton. He lost Davies (a future BBC-tv director) but Newton became, of course, the iconic pirate - Arrrgh! - Long John Silver.  The Oscar-winning kid, Driscoll, also played Disney’s Peter Pan in one of the earliest Hollywood examples of performance-capture - his acting was filmed, then rotoscoped. Acne ruined his career, Disney dropped him and he was buried in 1968 as a John Doe in a mass grave in New York's Potter's Field until fingerprints identified him.
