Billy Halop, From ‘Dead End’ to ‘Dangerous Years’

Actor Billy Halop, who found fame as one of the Dead End Kids before playing the lead in Dangerous Years (1947), is profiled in the latest issue of Films of the Golden Age. Marilyn had two short scenes (not with Halop) as a waitress in this teen crime B-movie, filmed shortly before she was dropped from her initial contract with Twentieth Century Fox.
