The Martin Milner thread

This is the thread for all things Martin Milner co-star of Adm-12.

When I watched that show I wouldn't have mind if he put handcuffs on me.

I need to find Route 66 on streaming so I can watch him on that with another of my faves, Glenn Corbett.

He was on with Greg Morris of " Mission Impossible." The thing I remember the most is that was very friendly, unlike some of the others. We spoke through the commercial breaks; he didn't ignore me, as " Timmy's mother" had done on a previous show. I remember his very attractive eyes and, most importantly, we won.

I'm convinced that his "Pete Malloy" held a torch for Kent McCord's "Jim Reed" in Adam 12. It was all in the care and concern that he showed for Reed in several episodes. Malloy rarely had a serious girlfriend, and would often rebuff the advances of several women, including those who Jim and his wife attempted to fix him up with.

When I was a lot younger, I went to the San Diego-area house where Martin Milner lived. His son (who was living with Martin Milner) was a friend of a friend. No, I didn't go inside the house, but I do remember looking into the house (through a window or an open door) and seeing dog shit on the floor (not carpeted), inside the house. The son was talking about the housekeeper or something. I just remember not liking that there was dog shit on the floor.

And her performance is so endearing because it's similar to her own story. She was the natural choice for the role. I've never heard anyone say anything bad about Sharon Tate as a person (outside of tabloids blaming her for her own murder, suggesting it was due to nefarious activities).

And I don't think they would have even if she hadn't been a victim in one of the most brutal crimes of the Twentieth Century. By all accounts, she was as beautiful internally as she was externally. I mourn her when I watch this film.

Him paired with the staggeringly gorgeous Kent McCord set my young loins afire in the 60s and 70s.

I 100% agree and have always felt the same. My personal theory has always been that Malloy was closeted and secretly in love with Reed. (And on some level, perhaps Reed was in love with him, too, particularly given how badly he and his wife got along sometimes.) All of which is just fanfic, I realize, but that's the way I saw it.

I read an article about the show recently in which someone said the producers must have been crazy. Why on earth did they choose to make Reed played by Kent McCord -- who would no doubt be the main draw for female viewers -- the boring family man and make Malloy played by the older Martin Milner the single one? Given the obvious sex appeal of the younger McCord, you'd think they'd have done the opposite.

By the way, I don't think they meant it as an insult to Milner, who was quite handsome in his own right, just saying that from a producer's viewpoint, it made no sense.

It was written with Malloy as a bachelor, and since Malloy was the lead character and Milner had better acting chops, they probably decided not to switch the character backstories.
