    (September 6, 1934-April 4, 2009)
    Born in Los Angeles, California
    Birth name was Joel Dee McCrae
    Son of actors Joel McCrae and Frances Dee
    Appeared in the films ‘The First Texan’ (1956), ‘Trooper Hook’ (1957), ‘Gunsight Ridge’ (1957), ‘The Monster That Challenged the World’ (1957), ‘The Restless Years’ (1958), ‘Young Guns of Texas’ (1962), ‘Operation Bikini’ (1963),’Beach Party’ (1963), ‘Muscle Beach Party’ (1964), ‘Pajama Party’ (1964), ‘Bikini Beach’ (1964), ‘Beach Blanket Bingo’ (1965), ‘How to Stuff a Wild Bikini’ (1965), ‘The Glory Stompers’ (1968) and ‘Cry Blood, Apache’ (1970)
    His first three movie appearances were minor parts in films starring his father.
    In a gimmicky bit of casting, he starred in ‘Young Guns of Texas’ alongside Robert Mitchum’s son James and Alan Ladd’s daughter Alana.
    He said about his recurring role in the ‘Beach Party’ films, ‘It took me four pictures to figure it out. The kids liked Deadhead because they felt superior to me – to him.’
    He threw javelin on UCLA’s national championship track and field team (1956).
    He was the only one of the ‘Beach Party’ regulars who actually surfed.
    He retired from films in 1970 to become a cattle rancher.
