Some obituaries:

Actor Billy Chapin, 72, seen often on television and movies during the 1950s, has died after a long illness, his sister Lauren has announced:

Chapin first appeared in movies as an infant and made his stage debut in the Broadway musical “Three Wishes for Jamie.” His first big movie role came in the 1953 movie “The Kid from Left Field.” Chapin played the “diaper manager” Christie Cooper in the family movie which also starred Lloyd Bridges and Anne Bancroft.

He is probably best remembered for his role as John Harper in the 1955 classic film “The Night of the Hunter.” The movie was directed by Charles Laughton and starred Robert Mitchum. The film was a critical and commercial failure at the time of its release but is considered a classic today.
