Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Actor. (b. Oct. 25, 1924, Millsboro, Pa., as William John Bertanzetti.) This fair-haired midget, whose movie career dates back to "Mickey McGuire" silent comedies of the late 1920s, is still fondly remembered as a mischievous little tyke in 1930s films such as Alice in Wonderland (1933) and A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935), in addition to Busby Berkeley musical extravaganzas in Footlight Parade, Gold Diggers of 1933 and Roman Scandals (all 1933). Barty has worked consistently since then, prolifi cally on television, and memorably in The Day of the Locust (1975), The Lord of the Rings (1978), Under the Rainbow (1981), Willow (1988), and Life Stinks (1991). As an adult, he's a real ham, glowering at fellow cast members and often snarling lines in his gravelly voice, and functions best in absurdly comic roles.
