History: Rene Beard was the younger brother of Matthew "Stymie" Beard, Carlena Beard, Betty Jane Beard, and Bobbie Beard. In 1947, when producer Hal Roach was looking for a new group of Rascals for the film Curley, former Rascals Matthew Beard brought six-year-old Rene to audition. Rene won the part of Dis in the films Curley and Who Killed Doc Robbin. He later had bit parts in a handful of films and television series, his last being a cameo in 1994's North. Today, he continues to keep legacy of his brother Matthew and the Our Gang series alive.
