John Bowman Duncan (born December 7, 1923) is an American actor. In addition to several business ventures, he continues to make appearances at Comic Book conventions and collector's shows worldwide.



Johnny Duncan learned to dance Jitterbug as a teen and by the age of 19 had his first major appearance in the movie The Gang's All Here as a dancer featuring Benny Goodman. This kicked off his career as a movie swing dancer and actor and lead to numerous appearances in movies including The East Side Kids, The Bowery Boys Mystery of the 13th Guest and the 1949 serial Batman and Robin as Dick Grayson/Robin, the Boy Wonder.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Duncan can still be spotted at the occasional movie convention, signing photos from The East Side Kids and Batman and Robin.
