Dick Clark starred in three movies. His first film role came in the 1960 youth
drama “Because They’re Young,” directed by Paul Wendkos, about a young
high school teacher who tries to help the troubled students at the school. In
1961, he starred as one of the titular "Young Doctors," alongside Fredric
March and Ben Gazzara, in a story about romance and lifesaving decisions
at a hospital. Perhaps his most unusual role came in the low-budget 1968
crime drama "Killers Three," in which Clark played a backwoods psycho
killer. He also served as a producer and writer on the film.
