Robyn Hilton‘s Hollywood breakthrough came in the 1974 satirical-comedy Blazing Saddles directed by Mel Brooks, in the role of Miss Stein, secretary to Governor William J. Le Petomane (a Native American chief who talks Yiddish). The film was on a $2.6 million budget, but it went on to make approximately $119.6 million and was a commercial hit. The film went on to receive three nominations for the Academy Award. Blazing Saddles remains her most desired after the film to date. 

The success of the film gave her several parts, including Denise in Single Girls (1974), Linda Loveman in The Last Porno Flick (1974), a guest appearance in the iconic procedural hit by the police The Rookies (1974).In the same year, she was published twice by Playboy in the publication, albeit fully dressed. She also featured on the 1974 Johnny Carson Show, where she listed her inspirations as Carole Lombard, Clark Gable, and Neil Diamond. She’s famously said on the Carson Show that she’s not smoking or drinking, just “other stuff” and studying numerology and astrology. 

In 1975, she appeared as Miss O’Toole in 1 episode of ever-popular Starsky and Hutch and the sex comedy Film Vixens. Still, gradually, the commercial positions ended, moving to the adult entertainment business. 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. Hilton featured in several more short adult films between 1975 to 1977.

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. But there is absolutely no evidence of her having ever served in adult entertainment. She eventually vanished from the public eye, and her last credited appearance was in 1985 in Malibu Express, starring other playboy playmates, including Lorraine Michaels, Barbara Edwards, and Lynda Weismeier. Since then, she has not appeared in any movies.


She had been dating Peter Knecht and Mitch Orenstein in 1956 and 1959, respectively, until she married William Hilton in 1961. Before starting her acting career, she met Hilton and was separated by the time she appeared in Flaming Saddles. Before they separated in 1968, the pair had two daughters and offered no apparent reason for any controversy. 

Many websites claim that she was married to Mel Gibson and had seven kids, but this is nothing more than misinformation. Gibson was married to Robyn Denise Moore, and their divorce came through in 2011.
