Tommy Bond menaced Spanky and Alfalfa as Butch the bully in over a dozen Our Gang comedies. As a young adult he played Jimmy Olsen in a couple of serialized film adventures of Superman. He seems really gay in some of the clips from those films. Check out the queeny line reading he gives at the 6:32 mark at this link. He figures prominently in the remainder of the episode. He shows gay-voice and also gay body language and facial expressions throughout these serials. Funny to think that Butch may have been at least partly queer. Tommy Bond had a long marriage and one kid, for what that's worth. Later he ran the props department on the Carol Burnett Show. He also wrote an amusing if brief autobiography.
