Martin Milner, Star of Adam-12 and Route 66, Dead at 83

7 September 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Veteran TV actor Martin Milner, best known for his starring roles in Adam-12 and Route 66, has died. He was 83.

After launching his career in such war-themed films Sands Of Iwo Jima (1949), Operation Pacific (1951) and Halls Of Montezuma (1951), Milner began his gradual transition to the small screen with a recurring role in Dragnet and guest stints on Wagon Train and The Twilight Zone.

In 1960, he scored his big break opposite George Maharis in Route 66, which ran for four seasons and nearly 120 episodes on CBS. He followed that up with a co-starring role NBC’s long-running cop drama Adam-12

Martin Milner, Star of ‘Adam-12,’ ‘Route 66,’ Dies at 83

7 September 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Martin Milner, who starred on TV on “Adam-12” with Kent McCord and, earlier, on “Route 66” with George Maharis, died Sunday night, Diana Downing, a representative for his fan page, confirmed. He was 83.

Milner was also known for his roles as a jazz guitarist in the brilliant 1957 film “Sweet Smell of Success” and in the 1967 camp classic “Valley of the Dolls.”

Milner began acting in movies while a teen, after his father got him an agent, first appearing in the 1947 classic “Life With Father.” The film starred William Powell and Irene Dunne, and thus Milner, along with his co-star Elizabeth Taylor, bridged the generations in Hollywood between the golden age and contemporary era.

He appeared as Officer Pete Molloy alongside Kent McCord’s Officer Jim Reed in NBC’s “Adam-12” from 1968-75. Molloy was the seasoned, savvy veteran bringing along Reed who was, at first, a rookie.

"Hondo": Quintessential John Wayne, a Quintessential Western—in 3-D

12 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Hondo (1953), which is set to play June 13 - July 4 at the Museum of Modern Art as part of their "3-D Summer" series, was John Wayne's first Western in three years. It was produced by his own Wayne/Fellows Productions (later named Batjac), founded just the year prior by Wayne and producer Robert Fellows. And James Edward Grant, who had already written several Wayne features and had a particular flair for writing classic John Wayne dialogue, penned the screenplay. All told, one gets the sense that everything about this exemplary return to the genre was a carefully conscious decision by the iconic American star. Hondo is a definitive Western. Moreover, it's a definitive John Wayne Western.When Wayne made Hondo, his masculine persona was already firmly established. After viewing the film at one point, Wayne supposedly declared, "I'll be damned if I'm not the stuff men are made of." Such a comment, »

How Whiplash kills the cheesy pupil-mentor genre stone dead

11 January 2015 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jk Simmons is generating awards buzz as a terrifying music teacher whose scenes with Miles Teller’s young drummer are like ‘two boxers in the ring

Jk Simmons on Whiplash: ‘The whole macho thing you develop at puberty never goes away’

Watching Whiplash, the story of the antagonistic relationship between a drumming prodigy and his ferociously demanding conservatory music teacher, almost the last thing on your mind is music. Although almost three-quarters of the film moves to the sound of drums, the images in one’s mind veer more towards drill sergeant movies, sports flicks and cult initiation rites. It could as well be called Squarebash as Whiplash, so often does the relationship between Jk Simmons’s unforgiving professor and Miles Teller’s whimpering pupil resemble that between R Lee Ermey’s splenetic Marine Corps drill instructor and Vincent D’Onofrio’s useless grunt in the opening act of Full Metal Jacket, »
