Jimmy Butler (February 20, 1921 – February 18, 1945) was an American, juvenile, motion-pictures actor, active in the 1930s and early 1940s.

Butler was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Merrill W. Butler. He gained early acting experience at the Pasadena Community Playhouse.[1]

Butler earned acclaim for his role in the 1933 film Only Yesterday, his screen debut,[2] and in 1934 his career got another significant boost when the actor earned lavish critical plaudits for his portrayal of Jim Wade in Manhattan Melodrama. Later he played one of the young protagonists, Boka, in No Greater Glory.

On February 15, 1941, Butler married singer Jean Fahrney. They initially kept the marriage secret, but it became known in March 1941.[3] They remained wed until his death.[4]

In 1945, Butler died in World War II combat in the town of Theding, France.[4]
