Dickie Jones ACTOR


Dickie Jones was born on February 25th, 1927 in Snyder, Texas.  He began working in the industry as a child actor.  His father worked as a Newspaper editor in Texas and by the age of four, Jones was already riding horses and billed as the youngest trick Rider and Roper.

When he turned six he got hired to perform live riding and doing tricks in a rodeo owned by a western star named Hoot Gibson who believed in Jones talent.  He convinced his parents that Jones could make it in the movies.    

Jones and his mom decided to travel to Hollywood and see if there was any chance a young boy with his talents could work in the film industry.  With the help of Gibson, Jones got a small part in a film which quickly opened up a number of more roles for him.
His break through role was on the film, "Pinocchio" (1940) even though he was not seen on screen it was his voice over work that earned him a large amount of attention in the industry.  He was still just a young man working in the industry and managed to continue getting his High School education. 
Soon he got a chance at a role on radio in the show, "The Aldrich Family".  When he was old enough to join the Army, he took a brief break from acting and  served in Alaska during World War II. 
When he completed his service, he returned right back to acting and was cast by Gene Autry in some more films as well as television roles.  He starred as Dick Jones in the television series, "The Range Rider" (1951) which had a run of seventy six episodes.  This was followed by Jones getting his own series, "Buffalo Bill Jr." (1955) and also had a decent run of forty episodes. 
Dickie Jones worked on films for a couple more years during the 1950's before deciding it was time to retire from the industry and pursue other interests.  He only married once to a lady named Betty in 1948 and they have four children, Rick, Melody, Jeffrey and Jennifer.  Today he works in real estate and banking and did appear in 2009 as a guest star at the Williamsburg, Virginia Film Festival as well as being a guest star at the Memphis Film Festival in 2010.
