Career

Even though Robyn began her acting career in 1964, before landing various roles she worked as a weather forecast reporter in her home town.

Robyn remained in the limelight for ten years, then after starring in the action-adventure movie called ‘Malibu Expres’s she exited the Hollywood scene. Her last credited role was in 1984, and after that, she went under the radar.

Besides her short but successful acting career, she modeled a lot, and was featured in many publications, and also appeared in commercials and on the cover of magazines.

Playboy Magazine

Given her nearly perfect looks, curves and luscious hair, it comes as a surprise that she was featured in Playboy Magazine in 1974, fully dressed. This was very unusual considering Playboy was an adult magazine, noted for its display of bikini-clad beauties, at most! In the same year, she appeared in a newspaper article ‘Sex In the Cinema”, and soon after that, was mentioned in another article with the title ‘Sex Stars’.

Arthur Knight was the author of these articles, a movie critic, historian, and a TV host. It is believed that being featured in these articles brought Robyn into the public focus, and augmented her earnings substantially.

Other Jobs

During her modeling career, Roben often graced various men’s magazines with her photos, and eventually she was discovered by Mitch Orenstein. He founded the M.O.R.E Publication, and worked as its CEO. Orenstein was infatuated with Hilton’s looks, and saw real potential for the adult magazine industry which she soon became involved in, attracting a lot of attention, given that many journalists wrote about her.

After Orenstein founded M.O.R.E Films Company, Robyn starred in the production of ‘Nudie Cutie’; many attribute her wealth to her association with the Company, which was very successful. Unfortunately the studio burned to the ground, and hence there are no official records left of her work.
