Paul Petersen


American actor and singer, he made his appearance on "The Donna Reed Show" as her son and went on to a singing career.

In 1955 he became one of Disney's original Mouseketeers. With two subsequent movies to his credit, including "Houseboat" with Sophia Loren and Carey Grant, Peterson landed his fame-inducing role on the Donna Reed Show. He even cut a few records. But in 1966 when the show ended he had difficulty finding work. He was devastated but found his way as a limousine driver and company owner, a writer and as an advocate for child stars.

He married three times, first to Brenda Benet from 1967-1970. Four years after that marriage ended in divorce, he married Hallie Litman (1974) and they divorced in 1988 after two children. He married Rana Jo Platz on 27 December 1992.
