Claude Jarman Jr.

Claude Jarman Jr. (born September 27, 1934 in Nashville, Tennessee) is a American former child film actor.

Jarman was discovered in a nationwide talent search by MGM Studios, and was cast as the lead actor in the film The Yearling (1946). His performance received glowing reviews and he was awarded with an Academy Juvenile Award as a result. MGM found him difficult to cast, and by the time he reached his late teens his career was virtually over. Republic Studios cast him in a couple of B pictures, but discouraged, he moved back to Tennessee.

He returned to acting with a role in the television production Centennial (1978), and he was a special guest as a past award winner at both the 1997 and 2003 Academy Awards Ceremonies.
