Martin Milner Biography

Martin Sam Milner (born December 28, 1931) is an American actor best known for his performances in two popular television series, Adam-12 and Route 66.

He has also appeared in other television series, numerous films, radio dramas, a Broadway play, and even a radio fishing show.

The son of a film distributor, Sam Gordon Milner, and a dancer with the Paramount Theater circuit, Mildred E. "Jerre" Milner (Martin), Martin Sam Milner was born in Detroit, Michigan. The family left Detroit when he was a baby, moving frequently before settling in Seattle by the time he was 9. It was in Seattle that he became interested in acting, first in school, and then in a children's theater group at the Cornish Playhouse. When he was 14, his family moved to Los Angeles. His parents hired an acting coach and then an agent for him. He had his first screen test and began his film career. His debut was in the widely acclaimed 1947 film Life With Father, playing "John Day," the second oldest son of "Clarence Day" (played by William Powell). Not two weeks after filming for Life With Father ended in August 1946, Milner came down with polio. He successfully recovered within a year and had bit parts in two more films before graduating from North Hollywood High School in 1949. He immediately landed a minor role in the film Sands of Iwo Jima starring John Wayne. It was the first of several war films in which he would have both minor and major roles in the 1950s. It was on the set of Halls of Montezuma in 1950 that he met and befriended actor Jack Webb. Soon thereafter, he began intermittent work on Webb's radio series Dragnet. Read Full Bio >>
