Dean Stockwell, age 13, in costume and on a bike during production of MGM’s 1950 release, The Happy Years (aka You’re Only Young Twice).
Here’s the snipe: “HERE HE IS– THAT ALL-AMERICAN BOY… It’s Dean Stockwell, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s young star, who, despite his stellar role in “You’re Only Young Twice,” finds time to enjoy himself between scenes. This is the film picturization of Owen Johnson’s famed stories of American youth at the turn of the century, with Dean in the role of the immortal Dink Stover. Also starred are Darryl Hickma, Scotty Beckett, Leon Ames and Margalo Gillmore. Filmed in Technicolor, it was directed by William Wellman, produced by Carey Wilson.”
