Here he is at age 10 on NBCís Philco Television Playhouse. This teleplay was written by Bea Arthurís ex-husband, and co-starred future Broadway legend Elaine Stritch: https://youtu.be/2uSd4PjbcVE

And here he is at 13 on CBSí General Electric Theater. I wonder what ever happened to that host: https://youtu.be/SYsr20yVx9E

It's amazing to see VDP in that 1991 Twin Peaks episode. I've found I can get people to be very surprised and have their eyes bug out when sharing that piece of trivia.  LOL

It's funny, just today I also made a discovery that Tony Asher is the son of 2 notable Hollywood folks, actress Laura La Plante:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0478851/

and Irving Asher:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0038868/

Laura what is a well-known Hollywood actress in the 1920s and 1930s, while Irving has a TON of major film producing credits, and also was the head of Warner Bros. UK in the 1930s, and his created with discovering Eroll Flynn.
