    I’ve been with you for a few years now, I guess, and remember you used to go on the road with an acrobatic act. You also know I am a fan of the “moldy oldie” American shows. If you go to youtube and put in “I’ve Got A Secret-Wally Cox 5/11/60” and move to the 8 minute mark (approximately), you will meet then-13 year old Michael McNamara. I won’t spoil the act, but the boy said that he learned his acrobatic routine from “an old man at the carnival”. Don’t let his “secret” fool you. I am sure that you will be impressed by the act. I tried several different combinations of information in Google to see what became of him. The best I found date-wise was a man who became a U. S. Marshall and died in Waco in 2015. I really don’t know what became of the young man.

      Well. I did exactly as you suggested, but all I found was two guys assembling a load of furniture! Are you sure that you gave me the right clue? No-one called Michael ever appeared…. we were intrigued! so we searched and found him at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPZRAJiqJTk ! Quite an amazing kid, and definitely we couldn’t do that! Thanks for the idea.

        You may have chosen the wrong video. Choose the 40 minute video that features a still of a female panelist. It’s marked as 40 minutes. Go to approximately 8:17. There, you will find a blonde boy sitting next to the host. From that point, you will see the boy’s performance. BTW, the man assembling the furniture with Garry Moore (the host) is the great American comedian Wally Cox. He was a great physical comedian, but was probably most famous for being a regular square on Hollywood Squares. He also did variety shows and does a side-splitting turn on “Here’s Lucy” fighting a local mobster dressed as an old lady. Wally didn’t look strong, but he had a lot of physicality. He and Marlon Brando shared an odd relationship by any standard, having grown up together in Chicago (according to Wikipedia). You ought to read what Marlon did to Wally. Marlon even stole Wally’s cremains. Kinda strange.

    I found it OK. The link I gave was the same item, cut from the longer video. Thanks.
