Legendary TV producer and presenter of boyish good looks, credited with introducing Americans to rock 'n' roll through his long-running TV music show Bandstand. And, for movie purists, there were a few films, especially as he juggled acting and producing careers in the 1960s: Disc Jockey Jamboree (1957), a trailer for Gidget (1959), the leading role in Because They're Young (1960), The Young Doctors (1961), Wild in the Streets (1968), Killers Three (1968), The Phynx (1969), The Suburbans (1999), Spy Kids (2001) and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002), his last. He died from a heart attack, a massive stroke having forced his retirement in 2004.
