The following list of movies was compiled from a number of sources and I hope is (or will be) a definitive list of Frankie's work.  Various sources list different years for certain pictures, so if any information listed here is incorrect, or if you can fill in any of the blanks, please let me know!

Silent Movies are listed below, but you can jump right to the Talkies!

Films listed in light green are movies I have on tape or DVD.  If you have a movie I don't already have or see something you've been looking for, let me know and we can work out a trade (movies listed here are NOT for sale!!!!).

According to Frank Coghlan, Jr.'s book, "They Still Call Me Junior", Frankie did the  acrobatic stunts for the lead child actor, Dinky Dean, in this film.  Frankie's father also doubled an actor in the same movie.  This would have been  Frankie's first film appearance.
