You have to be of a certain age to understand the impact and ubiquity of Kevin Corcoran. In the fifties and early sixties, he was the quintessential Disney kid. The kid brother, the title kid, but always the kid who stole scenes wholesale. And Walter E. Disney used him a lot.

Kevin Corcoran, best known to generations of film fans as the youngest brother in the classic, emotionally devastating Disney kids film Old Yeller, has died at 66, his family confirmed today. ...

By the last half of the sixties, he had pivoted away from acting and moved into production, becoming an assistant director and producer on a plethora of movies and television shows, everything from Pete's Dragon (1977) to Sons of Anarchy (2012).

It was a shock to learn that he's gone.
