Scott Hastings Beckett, better known as Scotty Beckett was
an American child actor. He is best remembered for his parts in the Our
Gang and Rocky Jones, Space Ranger series. He later years
were plagued by a series of profound problems and self-destructive
behavior: bad checks, failed marriages, violence, alcoholism, drug
abuse, crippling auto accidents and suicide attempts. He drifted from
job to dead-end job and had frequent run-ins with the police, one of
which involved an extended shoot-out.
Death: May 10, 1968
Beckett checked into a Hollywood nursing home for injuries caused by
a beating (possibly related to a drug deal that went bad). He was found
dead in his room two days later.
Sleeping pills and a note were found near his body, but an autopsy
ruled the cause of death "inconclusive". He was 38.
