Probably the best known of the seven acting Corcoran children, all of whom appeared in family movies of the 1950s and 1960s. Round-faced, with a mop of fair hair, he was nicknamed Moochie, and often played characters with the same name. Like all of his siblings, he started young: The Glenn Miller Story (1954), Violent Saturday (1955). The Birds and the Bees (1956), Gun for a Coward (1957), Old Yeller (1957, perhaps his best-remembered role), The Shaggy Dog (1959), the title role in Toby Tyler (1960), Swiss Family Robinson (1960), Pollyanna (1960), Babes in Toyland (1961), Bon Voyage! (1962), Savage Sam (1963), A Tiger Walks (1963), Blue (1968) and It Starts With Murder! (2009), his last. After his juvenile career, he became an assistant director on TV series, including more than 50 episodes of Murder She Wrote. He died from colorectal cancer.
