Generic boy who could cry on cue. Chris Olsen worked with some of the biggest stars and directors in several iconic films up to the age of ten. From baby to pre-teen Olsen appeared on-screen with megastars of the 50's and 60's, but he has almost no recollection of these unforgettable moments.

What's worse than having your glory days in high school or college? How about experiencing them from the ages of 8 to 10?

This is a well-crafted and extremely interesting short documentary. The best one I have seen from Mark Rappaport so far.

Extremely interesting experience. The boy's affiliation with Mega Movie Stars is fascinating.
