Rex Downing began in 'Our Gang' comedies, but his roles in these, and in feature films, were usually minor. He first received real attention when he played Young Heathcliff in the 1939 William Wyler film "Wuthering Heights" (1939). This was followed by major roles in "Mandrake, the Magician" (1939) and "Blood and Sand" (1941). After serving in World War Two, he returned to films, but only picked up a few small parts, so he eventually quit acting to become a teacher.
