Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

A serious-looking teenage actor of the 1930s, dark-haired Jimmy Butler earned good roles in such seminal dramas as Only Yesterday (1933), Manhattan Melodrama (1934), and Stella Dallas ([1938] as the grownup Con Morrison). Military Academy (1940) foreshadowed his eventual tour of duty in World War II. Sadly, he became one of a handful of Hollywood actors killed in action.
