Thanks, Vjmlhds, it was a pleasure and labor of love to work on this article. I've always thought that Tommy Rettig was one of the very best child actors of the 1950s.  JGHowes  talk 16:42, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

You're very welcome. Vjmlhds (talk) 17:33, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I've deleted it, now that an apparently free image has been found to replace in the article where previously used.  JGHowes  talk 01:06, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
