Can anyone identify the actor that played "Calvin" in this TV commercial recently posted on you tube?



Hint: He was in Hollywood from 1954-1965, mostly TV serials.

I know not many people like TV Commercials, but the character of Calvin was played by Joseph Hamilton (1899- 1965) the younger brother of Mark Hamilton.

He had a lot of TV character roles in the 50's and 60's (Joseph Hamilton at imdb.com). It is a bit painful to watch him in B movies like Teenage Cave Man (1958) and Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959). Glad to see he was able to find work in TV serials.

I know this is not a good example of classic film, but some character actors had to find work any where they could at that time.
