Morris Lippert as Danny in The Gaucho.
He is one of the boys with Mark that was making fun of The Gaucho.

Morris just turned 62….and lives in Phoenix Arizona. He is married and no children. He has been in the floor covering business for the last 35 years and still has family in California where he grew up.
When he was young he wanted a job, so instead of a paper route he rode his sister’s bike to the studio, got an agent…and the rest is history! He was in the Donna Reed Show, and a couple other shows, and did a movie with Danny Kaye and a pilot for television with Sherry Lewis….never got picked up….so ended his career at probably 12. He had red hair and freckles….and is still adorable!
