Eugene "Pineapple"Jackson


This filmography was made in collaboration with Matthew Lydick.


full name: Eugene William Jackson, Jr.
early nickname: Gene
professional nickname: Pineapple
born Dec. 25, 1916, in Buffalo, NY
died Oct. 26, 2001, in Compton, CA, of a heart attack

Special note: The full name given above is the way Gene's name appears in his contract with the Roach studio. Elsewhere, it has appeared as Eugene William Jackson II, but this probably would have been subsequent to the birth of his same-named son.

Also of special note: The filmography contained within Gene's autobiography differs in many places from his IMDb page. He states that there would have been hundreds of films, TV episodes and commercials that he appeared in, sometimes merely as an extra, and that he had long-forgotten the titles of most of them. However, there are many titles in his book that don't appear in IMDb. I've tentatively included all of the titles from both sources, but it's very possible that some of them are inaccurate. If a title doesn't appear in IMDb, it might be due to Gene not being readily recognizable in the film, or it might be that somebody inputting the info into IMDb actually disputed Gene's involvement. If anybody out there would like to correct any of the information listed below, be sure to email me at BtheW@aol.com, and I'll be happy to consider your argument.

Eugene Jackson's payroll history

The following is a list of Gene's history at the Roach studio, with the amounts he was making from week to week. The dates given are Saturdays, the last day of each week at the studio. The only exceptions would be Saturdays that were also holidays, in which case the Friday date is used for those weeks.

Special note: Production A38 (Ask Grandma) is missing from this list. It appears that it started off as the previous production, which then got divided into two films. Gene isn't in this particular film, but he's in the previous one, so some of the shooting dates for "The Love Bug" shown below are actually for "Ask Grandma."

We first encounter Gene during the week ending July 5, 1924.

  • July 5, 1924 - 60.00 charged to prod. A33 (The Mysterious Mystery!)
     Initially, Gene was given a short-term contract, and was listed in the payroll ledger as Gene Jackson.
  • July 12, 1924 - 60.00 charged to prod. A33
  • July 19, 1924 - 60.00 charged to prod. A33

After this, it would be over a month and a half before Gene returned to the studio. During a portion of the interim, the studio was closed for three weeks.

  • Sep. 13, 1924 - 50.00 - 41.67 charged to prod. A33, 8.33 charged to prod. A34 (The Big Town)
     At this point, Gene was given a long-term contract, and was listed in the payroll ledger as Eugene Jackson.
  • Sep. 20, 1924 - 50.00 - 8.33 charged to prod. A33, 41.67 charged to prod. A34
