Child actor

Watson was best known for his role as "Pee Wee" in the 1938 film Boys Town with Spencer Tracy. They became such good friends doing the movie that Watson was reportedly Tracy's last visitor before his death. In 1939, Watson delivered a fine, tear-jerking performance as Pud, Lionel Barrymore's grandson, in the MGM film, On Borrowed Time. Watson also had parts in many television shows, including The Twilight Zone, Lou Grant, The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, and The Fugitive.
