Was it Jackie that had so many troubles (abuses) as a child actor that he helped to either create or work to ensure that child actors are protected? I thought it was him but I might be wrong.

Despite their age diffs, Cooper was often enough confused with Coogan. I've looked him up over the years, glad he was still alive.
88 is a good long life.
R.I.P. Jackie Cooper...you brought it!
