He began his career as a child actor in the late 1950s. He considers his film debut a role he won as one of the sons of Paul Newman in the film Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys! (1958) with his older brother Stanley who by this time was already working as a child actor. He was let go from the film when he was told that he needed to get glasses to successfully correct his astigmatism. His first professional onscreen appearance was in a small, uncredited role in the 1961 film The Errand Boy, followed by roles as "Barry", a neighborhood kid, in The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, on The Dick Van Dyke Show and (as "Arnold Mooney", son of banker Theodore J.
