You remember him as: Dennis the Menace.

Mischievous Dennis Mitchell (Mason Gamble) makes the life of neighbor George Wilson (Walter Matthau) miserable with his overactive energy and inadvertent troublemaking. Because his parents must leave town for work and can’t find a baby sitter for Dennis, they ask George and his wife, Martha (Joan Plowright), to take care of him. But when burglar Switchblade Sam (Christopher Lloyd) breaks in to steal George’s gold coin collection, he takes Dennis as a hostage, and crusty George must save the boy.


Mr. Wilson would be proud. Gamble was a National Merit Scholar Finalist in high school and was also a pretty accomplished pole vaulter.

He graduated from UCLA’s Dentistry School and was studying marine biology as of 2011. In addition to all of that, Gamble continues to act a bit—his most recent movie was 2010’s Golf in the Kingdom with Malcolm McDowell and Frances Fisher.
