Jack Hanlon Dies: 'Our Gang' Actor Dead At 96

Jack Hanlon, the actor in 1926's "The General" and "Our Gang" in 1927, died Thursday in Las Vegas, his family said Sunday. He was 96-years-old. According to Contact Music, no details or the cause of death was announced but his family said he died of "old age." "Surprisingly, he was in good physical shape until two months ago," his niece, Wendy Putnam Park, told The Associated Press. "He liked being independent and watching old movies on TV. He basically died of old age." Hanlon starred in "The General" alongside Buster Keaton before getting larger roles in two of Hal Roach's "Our Gang/Little Rascals" films, "The Glorious Fourth" and "Olympic Games." Hanlon also had a role in 1929's "The Shakedown" and kissed Greta Garbo in 1930's "Romance" at the age of 13. The freckled child star, who was an active actor from 1926 to 1933, was a natural, Park said.
