History: Larry Joe Olsen comes from a show business family. His brother, Chris (born 1947), starred in "The Man Who Knew too Much" (1956) and his baby sister Susan (born 1961) became best known as Cindy Brady on the Seventies television sitcom "The Brady Bunch." He also has another sister named Diane (born 1966). As a child star, Larry starred in several movies in his film career; his first role was an uncredited one in 1943's "The Chance of a Lifetime." He later went on to play Curley in Hal Roach's 1947 film "Curley" in an effort to re-create the success of the Our Gang shorts. Not much more is know about his whereabouts.
