Robyn Hilton was born on July 13, 1944, in Twin Falls, Idaho, to James Elias Molyneux and Erma Jeanne Upp. The family is said to be of Scandinavian and Cherokee Indian roots with a Mormon background and was not too pleased about her choice of a career as an actress. Hilton spent her childhood on a farm and graduated from Jerome High School in 1958. In an interview she gave to the Desert Sun in 1974, she said that as a child, she had almost no hair and her mother often had to pin a bow on her head so everyone would know she was a girl.
Many websites have quoted her saying that it was so cold in Idaho that she would have to ski to school and that her dog would often have to dig her out of the snow. She went to the Boise Junior College and Utah State University and later worked as a weather forecaster for a local channel in Idaho, but set her sights higher and started seeking entertainment roles.
Prior to her movie debut, Hilton spent a few years starring in the “nudie-cuties” genre and appeared in many shorts. She met the publisher of M.O.R.E. Publications, Mitch Orenstein, in the mid-1960s, who helped her gain popularity thanks to his many publications where she appeared in the nude. The two are said to have started an affair around the same time her first photo shoot was published. By the early 1970s, Hilton was quite well known in the American adult entertainment world.
Robyn’s Hollywood debut came in the form of Miss Stein, secretary to Governor William J. Le Petomane (a Native American chief who speaks Yiddish) in the 1974 satirical-comedy Blazing Saddles directed by Mel Brooks. The film was made on a budget of $2.6 million, but went on to make approximately $119.6 million and was a commercial hit. The movie went on to pick up 3 Academy Award nominations. Blazing Saddles remains her most appreciated movie to date.
The movie’s success brought her many roles such as Denise in Single Girls (1974), Linda Loveman in The Last Porno Flick (1974), a guest appearance in the popular police procedural hit The Rookies (1974). In the same year, Playboy featured her in the magazine twice, but fully clothed. She also made an appearance on the Johnny Carson Show in 1974, where she cited Carole Lombard, Clark Gable and Neil Diamond as her inspirations. She famously stated on the Carson Show that she doesn’t smoke or drink, but does “other things” and was into numerology and astrology.
In 1975, she featured in 1 episode of ever-popular Starsky and Hutch as Miss O’Toole, and the sex comedy Video Vixens but eventually mainstream roles stopped and she returned to the adult entertainment industry. She teamed up with M.O.R.E. Publications once again and sure enough, they soon published M.O.R.E. Robyn Hilton with her as the main star. Between 1975 to 1977, Hilton featured in several more short adult films.
But as misfortune would have it, most of her adult industry work was destroyed in a fire at the M.O.R.E. warehouse in Carson City, Nevada. So there is virtually no record of her ever working in the adult entertainment industry. Gradually, she disappeared from the public eye, and her last credited role is in Malibu Express in 1985, which featured other Playboy Playmates such as Lorraine Michaels, Barbara Edwards and Lynda Weismeier. Since then, she has not appeared in any movies.
Personal Life and Marriages
Before marrying William Hilton in 1961, she was dating Peter Knecht and Mitch Orenstein in 1956 and 1959 respectively. She had met Hilton before her acting career took off and was divorced by the time she debuted in Blazing Saddles. The couple had two children before they divorced in 1968 and did not give any clear cause of any dispute.
Plenty of websites quote that she was married to Mel Gibson and they had 7 children, but it is nothing but misinformation. Gibson was actually married to Robyn Denise Moore, and their divorce came through in 2011.
After her first divorce, Hilton remained single for several years and married Alan Mihoces on April 20, 1990. After having a child together, the couple divorced 19 years later, in 2009. Since then, there have been no reports on her relationships. There is no information on the whereabouts of any of her children.
