Early years

Aaker’s mother, Mrs. Myles Wilbour, was the owner of a dancing school in Los Angeles. Another source says that she “ran a children’s theatre academy” and that at age 4, she had Aaker “singing and dancing at local clubs.”

Career

On television as a young child, he started appearing uncredited at the age of 8 in films such as The Greatest Show on Earth (1952) and High Noon (1952). He quickly moved to featured status by the end of that year.

He showed talent as the kidnapped Indian “Red Chief” in a segment of the film O. Henry’s Full House (1952) and another kidnap victim as the son of scientist Gene Barry in The Atomic City (1952).

Television

In 1953-54, Aaker was among the many child actors who auditioned for the role of “Jeff Miller” on the original 1954 Lassie series, which later aired as Jeff’s Collie. That role went to Tommy Rettig. Two weeks later, Aaker won the role of “Rusty” on The Adventures of Rin-Tin-Tin, co-starring James Brown (1920–1992) as Lieutenant Ripley “Rip” Masters.
