A couple quotes from imdb.com about jackie Coogan.|
The youngest self-made millionaire in history.
His contract with Metro earned him $1 million per year. After money problems with his parents, he helped organize the Coogan Bill, which protected child actors from such abuse in the future.
By 1923, Coogan was the top box office star in the United States. He appeared in two more successful films: Daddy and Circus Days. That same year, Coogan signed a contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
Born in 1914, he was making a million a year at Metro when he was nine years old. How much is that in 2010 dollars?
