Mickey Kuhn, a child actor from Hollywood’s Golden Age of the 1930s and 1940s, has passed away. He was 90.

At the age of six, Kuhn had a notable cameo in the 1939 Civil War classic “Gone With the Wind.” Olivia de Havilland, who portrayed Melanie, passed away in 2020 at the age of 104, making him the longest-living cast member. Barbara Kuhn revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that her husband passed away on Sunday at a hospice facility in Naples, Florida.

In the drama, he portrayed Beau Wilkes, the son of the characters played by de Havilland and Leslie Howard. Kuhn also starred in the films “Dick Tracy” (1945), “Red River” (1948), and “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1951).

In an interview with the Washington Post in 2014, he reflected on his time spent working with the “Gone With the Wind” ensemble.

He even revealed how he repeatedly botched a sequence with actor Clark Gable. He explained, “My line was ‘Hello, Uncle Rhett.'” “I couldn’t stop saying ‘Hello, Uncle Clark’ “

In one scene, Kuhn appeared beside Howard (portrayed by Ashley Wilkes) outside the chamber in which his mother, Melanie (portrayed by de Havilland), is unwell. “Where is my mum relocating? And why can’t I accompany you, please?’ said a young Kuhn in the scene.

Despite portraying de Havilland’s offspring, he did not meet her until 2006, at her 90th birthday party. After that celebration, he phoned her every year on her birthday until she passed away over 15 years later.

In addition to “Magic Town,” “Broken Arrow,” “One Foot in Heaven,” “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn,” and “Scene of the Crime,” Kuhn starred in “Magic Town,” “Broken Arrow,” “One Foot in Heaven,” and “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.” Kuhn joined the United States Navy in 1951 and served for four years. Later, he took a break from his film career to become an airplane electrician. In the mid-1950s, he had cameo appearances in the films “The Last Frontier” and “Away All Boats” after leaving the military.
