Who is Robyn Hilton?
Robyn J. Hilton (née Molyneux) was born on the 13th July 1944, in Twin Falls, Idaho USA, of Scandinavian and Cherokee Indian ancestry, so is currently at the age of 74. She is an actress, who is probably still best recognized for starring in the role of Miss Stein in the western comedy film “Blazing Saddles” (1974), and portraying Maid Marian in the mystery crime comedy film “Malibu Express” (1985). She is also known for being a former model.
Early Life and Education
Speaking about her early life, Robyn Hilton spent her childhood on a 3000-acre family farm near Twin Falls, where she was raised by her parents. It is also known that she hails from a Mormon family, holds American nationality and is of Caucasian ethnicity. At the age of three, Robyn decided to be an actress.
Regarding her education, Robyn attended Jerome High School, where, she performed in various school productions. Upon apparently matriculating in 1958 – aged 14 – she enrolled in Boise Junior College, but eventually graduated from Utah State University.
Prior to becoming famous as a model and actress, Robyn spent some time working as a weather forecaster at the local television network right after her graduation. However, she later changed her vocation, and started pursuing a career as a model, appearing in commercials for such brands as Dodge, Prell, etc. Moreover, Robyn also featured on the cover of the “Cult Movies” magazine in 2001.
Thanks to her beauty and body shape, she posed two times in “Playboy Magazine”, but both times fully clothed, which was quite unusual. First time she was featured in the article “Sex In Cinema” in November of 1974, and in the following month she appeared in another article entitled “Sex Stars”, both written by Arthur Knight, and which contributed significantly to her net worth.
Collaboration with Mitch Orenstein
As a model, Robyn also posed nude for various men’s magazines, which led her to be spotted by Mitch Orenstein, the founder and CEO of M.O.R.E Publications, who was fascinated by her beauty. She then became involved in the adult industry thanks to him, and featured in his various publications. Later, after his establishment of M.O.R.E Films Company, she started playing in his ‘Nudie Cutie’ productions, increasing her net worth by a large margin. However, there is no official record left of her work in the industry for adults, as Mitch’s studio burned to the ground.
Acting Career Beginnings
Robyn started her acting career in 1964, when she landed small roles in the comedy/fantasy erotic film “My Tale Is Hot”, and in Peter Perry’s film entitled “Kiss Me Quick!” the same year. In 1971, when Mitch Orenstein established M.O.R.E Films, she started posing, while her next on-screen role came nine years later, when she made her appearance as a blonde girl in white bikini in the sci-fi horror action title “Wonder Woman” (1973), but the role went uncredited. However, it did not discourage her, as she continued to pursue her career in the world of acting.
Rise to Prominence and “Blazing Saddles”
Robyn soon came to prominence with the role of Miss Stein in the western comedy film “Blazing Saddles” (1974), directed by Mel Brooks, which became a huge commercial success, winning three Academy Award nominations and receiving positive critiques, increasing enormously her popularity and adding a considerable amount to her net worth.
It was followed by her portrayal of Linda Loveman in the comedy film “Those Mad, Mad Moviemakers”, featuring as Denise in the exploitation film “The Single Girls”, next to Claudia Jennings, Greg Mullavey and Joan Prather, and playing Inga in the comedy film “Video Vixen!”, all in 1974.
During the same year, she also portrayed a blonde in bikini in the action drama film “Mean Mother”, and guest-starred in the roles of Crystal in an episode of the ABC police procedural drama series “The Rookies”, and Trudy in an episode of another procedural drama series, entitled “Police Woman”, which was aired on the NBC Network.
Period from 1975 to 1985
In 1975, Robyn landed the role of Nancy in the NBC mystery thriller film “Death Among Friends”, and the same year was cast as Karen in the action film “Doc Savage: The Man Of Bronze”, directed by Michael Anderson. In the following years, Robyn was not quite active in the search for other projects, but made guest-starring appearance as Miss O’Toole in an episode of the ABC action television series “Starsky And Hutch” (1977). To speak further about her acting career, Robyn’s last role came in 1985, when she portrayed Maid Maria in the mystery crime comedy film “Malibu Express”, starring alongside Sybil Danning, Darby Hinton and Lynda Wiesmeier.
In addition to her involvement in the entertainment industry, Robyn was a guest in the highly popular TV series “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” in 1974. Thanks to her starring in the western comedy film “Blazing Saddles”, she was chosen to appear in the short documentary film about it, entitled “Blazing Saddles: Back In The Saddle” (2001), which also increased her wealth.

Where is she now?
