    (October 24, 1936-January 11, 2011)
    Born in New York City, New York
    Son of Ozzie and Harriet Nelson
    Older brother of Ricky Nelson
    Starred in 'The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet' (1952-66)
    Appeared in the films 'Here Come The Nelsons' (1952), 'Peyton Place' (1957), 'The Big Circus' (1959), 'The Big Show' (1961), 'High School U.S.A.' (1983) and 'Cry-Baby' (1990)
    Directed the films 'Childish Things' (1969), 'Death Screams' (1982) and 'Last Plane Out' (1983)
    He was overshadowed by his brother.
    His intro on 'The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet' was a blah 'the oldest of the Nelson boys.' (Ricky at least got an 'irrepressible' for his intro.)
    He divorced Playmate June Blair.
    He said of being the family's straight man, 'I didn't resent it. When Ricky said something funny, I laughed.'
    He trained as a trapeze artist for the film 'The Big Circus.'
    He straightened out his brother's tangled finances after Ricky's death, with Matthew Nelson noting, 'He was the guy that stepped up to the plate and said, 'I'm going to do this for my brother and for his kids.' I'll always thank him for that.'
