Yes, he did. The movie was "tom thumb", produced and directed by George Pal.
It's currently playing on the Disney Channel, in fact. It was amusing when
I happened upon it the other night. I hadn't known that Tamblyn was in the
lead, and it was striking that I was able to recognize a 30-year-younger
Tamblyn so readily (especially when one considers that I didn't see any
close-up shots of him).

Even more amusing was the fact that my housemate recognized him as "one of
the guys from SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS".
