Mr. Perkins is "the richest man" in Astoria, Oregon. He is Troy's father.

Involvement[edit | edit source]

Mr. Perkins plans to acquire the Goon Docks to turn the area into a golf course for the Astoria Country Club. He attempts to visit the Walsh residence to see Irving Walsh about this, but leaves when he isn't home.

The following morning, he approaches Irving at Cannon Beach, where he and his wife reunite with their missing sons. He gloats and has him begin to sign; before Irving can finish, however, Rosalita discovers Mikey's marble bag full of precious gemstones, which allow the family to avoid foreclosure, saving the Goon Docks from being destroyed, much to his and Troy's dismay.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Mr. Perkins is portrayed by Curtis Hanson.

Two first names are given for Mr. Perkins - Gustave, as seen on the paperwork at the end of the film, and Elgin, used in the novelization of The Goonies. He is also noted as being the chairman of the country club in the novel.
