Biography

New York City, New York, USA
Moyer Bupp was born in New York City, New York. Al Jolson was the hottest item on stage and Moyer's father nicknamed him "Sonny" after one of Jolson's songs. It was the height of the Great Depression and on the chance of a better job Sonny's parents loaded the children (all five of them) into the car and headed west. His very pretty 18-year-old sister June was offered an audition and was the first of the Bupp kids to become an actor in the movies. Ann was next in 1932, Tommy in 1933 and Sonny started in 1934.
