Clothing and Costumes Worn by Child Actors: F

Figure 1.--Edward Furlong started his movie career in a Arnold Swartzenager film. Here he wears baggy jean shorts that were so popular in the 1990s.

Information about child actors also provides a great deal of fashion information. Both clothes these children wore as well as the costumes they wore in their films and shows provide much valuable information. These childrens often dressed very fashionably so information about them provides insights into contemprary fashions. The costumes they wore in films also provides useful information--although it must be treated more cautiously. HBC is preparing an alphabetical listing of child actors in movies, plays, and television. We like to add images with their acr=tual clothes, but often all we can find are scenes from their movies and television shows.

Foster, Brian - (US)

Played little tow-headed Chris who was the drummer on the Partridge Family. He is now a race car driver, but I can see very little resemblance. The boys on the show all wore contemporary fashions a various fancy styles when they peformed.

Fox, Huckleberry - (US,1976?- )

I was really impressed with Huckleberry. His sweetest role was in "Misunderstood" (1982). He was quite young there, but I liked his confrontations with the overbearing nanny. He also had several destinctive outfits in the film. He also appeared in "Terms of Endearment," (1983) in which he had one real tear jerker scene. He appeared on a TV horror series, at once least in a short pants suit with white knee socks. He really looked nice. He was on a number of TV shows. I particularly liked his role as the perfect little boy in "Conrad" ( ). He was also very effective as the younger brother in "Two Soldiers." I was impressed with his performance as well as his ability to speak in a hillbilly accent. His other movie roles were "Time Flyer" (1985) and "The Incredible Ida Early". Curiously I haven't seen him lately. I wonder if his parents decided to take him out of show business for some reason. I certainly would have liked to have seen him in more shows. I don't know anything about him personally, as I never saw any press articles on him.

Frank, Eddie - (US)

Quite a personable boy, Eddie played Christine as a boy in the "Christine Jorgenson Story" (1970) in which he dresses up in sissy clothes.

Frank, Jeffrey

Furlong, Edward - (US, 1978?- )

W ith no real experience, Edward Furlong, got the role as Arnold Swartzenager's little friend in "Terminator II" (1991). His mother had personal problems. He got into a lot of fights so his uncle took him in for tge audution. After getting his movie role, his mother became suddenly interested in him. He was being cared for by his uncle and then all of a sudden his mother and aunt wanted custody. He played his role in "Terminator II" quite well.

Furlong, Kirby - (US, 1963- )

Kirby Furlong was born in Los Angeles. I do not know if he was related to Edward Furlong. He played the young Patrick in "Mame" (1974). He was about 11 years old at the time. He did an adequate, but not particularly memorable job. Kirby had an extensive TV career appearing in many episodes of various TV series. He was kind of the utility kid when ever a series need a boy for a particular episode during the early 1970s. He is best known for playing Jake Howard on the "Jimmy Stewar Show" (1971-72). On the other TV shows he appeared only as a non-regular in various series. I never saw the "Jimmy Stewart Show", but did note him in "The Odd Couple" and "Adam 12" appearances. He seem more notable for bing a cute kid than a child actor. Perhaps readers have a better assessment if his acung career. His final appearance was as a teenager on a TV show, "Off the Minnesota Strip" (1980). "Mame" was, however, his only movie role.
