If it's worth anything, I am the relative of 'Little' Billy Rhodes. In fact, I didn't even know about it until a while back when I was watching THE STOLEN JOOLS (1931), which was a short comedy film that features comedians such as Laurel and Hardy and Buster Keaton. Anyways, I was watching it with my grandfather, who is an avid fan of both Laurel and Hardy and The Three Stooges and really all things slapstick comedy. During the end of the film, my grandfather said, "Hey, that's Billy!" Upon asking him who he was, I found out that he was a character actor who was famous for being, well, little. I don't see the relation on those terms, because most of my family on his side seems to be pretty tall. I asked what the relation was, and I think that it was my great-grandfather's cousin. If anybody has any other information about him, please feel free to share.
