The word for this performer is adorable. The word could have been created for her.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Dickie Moore.

Margaret O'Brien, Dickie Moore, and his wife, Jane Powell at the TCM Film Festival Vanity Fair Party in 2011. (from my archive)

Here is the accompanying obituary from Legacy.com:

Dickie Moore, the former child star best known for his appearances in the Our Gang comedies has died, according to Deadline.com. He was 89.

The husband of famous actress Jane Powell, Moore began his long career in show business when he was only 11 months old, playing John Barrymore as an infant in the 1927 silent film "The Beloved Rogue." He would go on to appear in more than 100 films during the next 30 years.

His memorable movie performances included starring roles in "Oliver Twist," "Sergeant York" and "Heaven Can Wait." But he probably is best remembered for his appearances in the Our Gang comedies and as the boyfriend who gave Shirley Temple her first screen kiss in the 1942 film "Miss Annie Rooney."

In 1932, producer Hal Roach recruited him for Our Gang, where he worked with Spanky, Stymie and the kids for a year before resuming his career in feature films, including "The Life Of Emile Zola" with Paul Muni and "The Bride Wore Red" with Joan Crawford, among others.

His last film was "The Member Of The Wedding" in 1952.

His 1984 book, "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," is an autobiographical account of his childhood in the movie business that looks at the hardships that many child actors face growing up in front of the cameras.

Besides his wife, he is survived by his sister, publicist Pat Kingsley; his son, Kevin Moore; and numerous grandchildren, stepchildren and step-grandchildren.

I love Martin Milner - he's one of those rare actors that speaks so well on Television and that's one of the many reasons why I like Adam-12 so much!

Dick Moore was such a wonderful person. Like most of us, I grew up watching his old movies and I was pleasantly surprised when I met him. I was interviewing him in connection with the release of his autobiography and I came to realize what a thoughtful, serious man he was and how sincere he was about helping other kids avoid the pitfalls that so many youngsters had gone through in old Hollywood.
Thank you so much Moira for the link -- I've seen it before, but it was so nice to view it again.

Oh, my goodness! Another legend has left us. I, also, hope it was a peaceful transition. I'm hearing "I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen" in my head!
