Richard Eyer

Birthday: May 6, 1945
Birthplace: Not Available
American juvenile actor Richard Eyer wasn't a "child star" per se; instead he was a natural, convincing young character lead, much like Elisha Wood in the 1990s. From 1954 through 1958, Eyer was prominently cast in such major features as The Desperate Hours (1955, as Fredric March's dangerously impulsive son) and Friendly Persuasion (1956). Habitues of Saturday matinees of the 1950s are most familiar with Eyer's work in two enjoyable fantasy films. In The Invisible Boy (1957), Richard Eyer plays the title role, sharing screen space with Robby the Robot; and in The Seventh Voyage of Sindbad (1958), his last film, Eyer was the metallic-voiced Baronni the Genie.
