About Martin Milner
Martin Milner is a retired film, stage, radio and television actor who has an estimated net worth of $500 thousand. Born on December 28, 1931 in Detroit, Michigan, he moved around a great deal as a child before the family finally settled in Seattle. He became involved in acting while in school, and later in a children’s theater group at the Cornish Playhouse.
The Milner family moved to Los Angeles when he was a teenager, and he began studying acting with an acting coach. He made his debut in the 1947 film Life with Father, where he played the role of John Day. However, he became ill with polio, leading him to put his career on hold. He recovered after a year and did two more film works while graduating from Hollywood High School in 1949.
Milner had a minor role in the film Sands of Iwo Jima starring John Wayne. He had roles in films such as Operation Pacific and Halls of Montezuma. He became friends with actor Jack Webb, with whom he had worked on Webb’s radio series Dragnet.
Milner went to the University of Southern California to study theater, but dropped out after a year to focus on acting. He had a guest starring role on The Lone Ranger and a recurring role on The Stu Erwin Show. He went to serve for two years in the US Army and returned to acting with a recurring role in The Life of Riley.
Since then, Milner had guest appearances on a number of television shows, such as The Bigelow Theater, The Great Gildersleeve, TV Reader’s Digest, Science Fiction Theater, Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse, Matinee Theater, The West Point Story, The Twilight Zone and Rawhide. His most notable film performances included The Long Gray Line, Mister Roberts, Gunfight at the O.K. Coral, Sweet Smell of Success, Marjorie Morningstar, Compulsion and 13 Ghosts. He was also credited in the films like Bells on Their Toes, Francis in the Navy, Pillars of the Sky, Valley of Dolls, The Millionaire, The Virginian and Life Goes on. He is most widely recognized for his performances in The Swiss Family Robinson and Route 66 for his lead role.
