Some Fans Are Still Hooked
Despite making six films a year as a child actor, Charlie Korsmo never became well-known. He made an impression on people who saw him in the film version of Dick Tracey and as Peter Pan’s son in Disney’s Hook. However, it was all by choice, not because he lacked ability.
Charlie never intended to pursue a career as an actor for the rest of his life. He left show business to study physics at MIT and later studied law at Yale. He is now a law professor and still receives a steady stream of fan mail requesting autographs on trading cards from his films.
