Orley Lindgren with John Garfield

Orley Lindgren appeared in 18 movies between 1943 and 1954, often appearing early in the movie in the role of the hero as a boy. He was good with horses, and perhaps his most significant leading role was as the son of a jockey in Under My Skin (1950). His film career ended with his teen years and he went on to get a PhD at The University of California in Berkeley, and later became a business consultant.
