The Story of Jackie Coogan, the Actor and Millionaire Kid Who Was Ripped Off by His Own Parents

Jackie Coogan was born into a family of theater actors in Los Angeles in 1914. He started his acting career at a young age and his outstanding talent made him a millionaire. But according to the law, a kid couldn’t manage this money and he had to entrust his finances to his parents. Jackie lived on $6 per day with the thought he was going to get all of his earnings at 21. But unlike the movies, a happy ending in real life is a rare thing.
