The Resume

    (December 31, 1940-March 3, 2022)
    Born in Los Angeles, California
    Portrayed Spin in ‘Spin and Marty’ and Frank Hardy in ‘The Hardy Boys’ (both segments of The Mickey Mouse Club) and Mike Douglas in My Three Sons

Why he might be annoying:

    He was a nail biter.
    As with a lot of late 1950s/early 1960s teen idols, he recorded a couple of singles to try to launch a music career.
    He said he gave a bad performance in ‘The Shaggy Dog’: ‘It was a very critical time as a teenager, and I was more interested in being a cool guy than being an actor.’
    He left ‘My Three Sons’ in the middle of its run and his acting career largely dried up.
    He married and divorced actress Charlotte Stewart.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He said about filming the ‘Spin and Marty’ serials, ‘The work and play were often indistinguishable.’
    He had a small but memorable scene in ‘Patton’ as the bedridden soldier slapped by George C. Scott.
    When his acting career cooled off, he took up writing and photography, with an emphasis on sports and automobiles.
    He accompanied Pele on a world tour as a photographer.
    He occasionally substituted for William Safire in the ‘On Language’ column in the New York Times magazine.
