"The NeverEnding Story" is not one of my childhood memories, but I've seen the darn thing a thousand times. My daughter, Annie, was just the right age for that movie when it came out and, of course, we owned a copy and wore it out.

I'll confess to being somewhat captivated by the movie. I liked the theme and the feel of the whole thing, so I became a pretty big fan. Needless to say, the film has become a real classic over the years and, to this day, my daughter still talks about that movie.

So, whatever happened to the kid stars who were part of this movie? I'm happy to say that this is not your usual story about stardom leading to jail and a life of misery. In fact, most of the kid actors involved in this film have shown abnormally good sense in their lives. How refreshing is that?
