Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Richard Ross Eyer (born May 6, 1945, Santa Monica, California) is a former American child actor during the 1950s and 1960s who taught elementary school in the eastern Sierra city of Bishop in Inyo County until he retired in 2006. He is the older brother of Robert Eyer (b. May 6, 1948), another child actor of the period who is deceased. In 1960–1961, Eyer was cast in the role of the teenaged David Davey Kane on the ABC television Western series Stagecoach West, having portrayed the fictional son of stagecoach co-owner Simon Kane, played by the late Robert Bray. The series, a production of Dick Powells Four Star Television, also starred Wayne Rogers, later Trapper John on M*A*S*H. Eyer was a boy with the clean-cut, all-American look who won personality contests and other competitions before he made his film debut in the early 1950s. In 1956, he was the youngster who runs afowl of the goose in director William Wylers Friendly Persuasion. Science fiction viewers will remember him for the starring role in The Invisible Boy, which was producer Nicholas Nayfacks independent sequel to MGMs Forbidden Planet. In The Desperate Hours (1955), Eyer played Frederic Marchs dangerously impulsive son. His last film was The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad in 1958. He portrayed the metallic-voiced Baronni the Genie.
