A few clues for you to use:This male actor's real name was Whipple. The name Whipple was given in honor of an ancestor on his father's side, William Whipple of New Hampshire, who had co-signed the Declaration of Independence.
He graduated from Lamar High School in Houston, Texas, in 1949, and went on to attend Blinn Junior College on a football scholarship. Having been raised in a devout Christian home, he studied one semester at Dallas Bible Institute before joining the Army.
He rejected several film offers because the scripts contained unnecessary foul language, exploited sex, or gruesome violence and he settled down to a family life. He finally chose to put the film industry behind him and joined the ministry under Chuck Smith's Calvary Chapel.
