Headstone placed on grave of 'Little Rascals' star

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Fans of the "Little Rascals" film series were in Baltimore this weekend to place a headstone at the grave of child actor Norman "Chubby" Chaney.

Chaney's grave had been unmarked for 76 years since he died at age 21. Chaney was paid a weekly salary when he appeared in the films between 1929 and 1931. But he didn't receive any royalties or residual payments and returned to Baltimore when he grew out of the role. The Baltimore Sun reported Sunday that he struggled with his weight as a teenager. When he died, his mother couldn't afford a headstone for his grave.

The series was known as "Our Gang" when it was shown in theaters and later as the "Little Rascals" on television.
