American child star of stage, screen, radio, and TV who reached a career peak as Jeff Miller, the first young master of CBS-TV's "Lassie" from 1954-57. Rettig started performing at age six, touring with Mary Martin in "Annie Get Your Gun." He started in films at ten with a small role in Elia Kazan's medical crime drama, "Panic in the Streets" (1950), and went on to amass 20 feature credits over the course of the 1950s in films directed by such luminaries as Douglas Sirk ("Weekend With Father" 1951), Michael Curtiz ("The Egyptian" 1954), Otto Preminger ("River of No Return" 1954), and Vincente Minnelli ("The Cobweb" 1955). The film for which he will probably always be remembered is one of the quirkiest children's films ever made--"The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T." (1953).
