If you were wondering, as I was, whatever happened to “Freckles” Barry?, well, it turns out that silent-era child star Wesley Barry (1907-1994) became a TV and B-movie director/producer in the 1950s. His best known film was The Creation of the Humanoids (1962) but he was also an assistant director on Roger Corman’s The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre (1967).
