Jerry Mathers, the Beaver himself

Happy Birthday to Leave it to Beaver star, Jerry Mathers!  Flashback on Wikipedia:

In a commercial, at age 2, he walked into a barroom wearing diapers, six guns, cowboy boots and a big cowboy hat.

Jerry Mathers’ urban legend:

It was falsely reported that he died in Vietnam, a rumor unknowingly spread by actress Shelley Winters during an appearance she made on The Tonight Show in the late 1960s. While Mathers did serve in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, he remained in the United States. The rumor was so widespread and believable that Tony Dow sent flowers to the Mathers family upon hearing the news.
