Jackie Coogan rocketed to child stardom trailing after Charlie Chaplin in "The Kid" and was later
known to a new generation as the comically ghoulish Uncle Fester on television's "Addams
Family."

Although his best earning years were in childhood (when his salary topped a then-fabulous
$22,000 a week), Coogan's greatest impact on the motion picture industry may have come in
1938, when a lawsuit seeking to recover his squandered fortune from his mother and stepfather
led to passage of a law popularly known as the "Coogan Act."
