Martin Milner


Born - 28 December 1927, Detroit, Michigan, USA
Died - 6 September 2015

Tall, fair-haired, flush-faced, solidly-built American actor whose early career was dotted with young men undergoing baptisms of fire, but who never rose above featured player status until TV lent fresh impetus to his career in the 1960s, notably as the star of the series Route 66 and Adam-12. After a debut in Life With Father (1947), he kept busy in the last of the studio years: Sands of Iwo Jima (1949), Cheaper by the Dozen (1950), Halls of Montezuma (1950), I Want You (1951), Belles on Their Toes (1952), The Sabre and the Arrow (1953), The Long Gray Line (1954), Pete Kelly's Blues (1955), Gunfight at the OK Corral (1956), Sweet Smell of Success (1957), Marjorie Morningstar (1958), Compulsion (1959), 13 Ghosts (1960), Zebra in the Kitchen (1965), Valley of the Dolls (1967), Ski Fever (1969) and The Swiss Family Robinson (1975), his last, although he continued acting in TV series until the late 1990s. His marriage to former actress Judith Bess Jones endured for nearly 60 years.
