American actor Brian Kelly is best remembered for playing ranger Porter Ricks in the television adventure series Flipper (1964-1968). Tall and handsome, Kelly also appeared in feature films such as Thunder Island (1963). Kelly's career came to an abrupt end in 1971 when a motorcycle he borrowed blew up leaving him with a speech impediment and partially paralyzed on the right side of his body. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
