New York-born actor Joseph Walsh -- who is probably best remembered under the name Joey Walsh, as a child actor and juvenile player -- enjoyed a busy career from the end of the 1940s until the mid-1960s. Although most of his work was confined to the small-screen, as a child actor Walsh managed to play key supporting roles in two feature films that couldn't have been too much more different in tone or purpose. In 1952, he was seen by millions of filmgoers (and millions more television viewers in decades to come) as Peter in Samuel Goldwyn's opulent Technicolor production of Hans Christian Andersen, starring Danny Kaye, a gently whimsical account of the career of the renowned children's story author. And the following year, he was seen by far fewer filmgoers in Edward Dmytryk's The Juggler, starring Kirk Douglas in a story of a psychologically unhinged Holocaust survivor on the run in Israel. Around and after those two big-screen offerings, Walsh was seen on numerous dramatic anthology shows, and in episodes of series ranging from The Greatest Show On Earth and Bonanza to Voyage To The Bottom of the Sea, broken up by an uncredited appearance in the comedy-drama feature Captain Newman, M.D. (1964). He re-emerged in the early 1970s as an actor (and co-author and producer) of the Robert Altman movie California Split (1974), which was based on Walsh's own experiences.
