48 Gaby Hoffmann - Field of Dreams
49 Elizabeth Taylor - National Velvet
50 Michael Oliver - Problem Child
51 Bobby Driscoll - The Window

I faint when he does...see him in Disney's Treasure Island (1950), and watch those eyes!

At age 12, this film garnered him a special Oscar. Unfortunately, his was a brilliant star plucked from the heavens well before its time.

52 Anton Yelchin - Alpha Dog
53 Ryan Kelley - Prayers for Bobby
54 Ryan Kelley - Still Green
