Met him a few years ago at a horror convention. SUCH a nice man, and still looks great. He was with his wife, who was at his autograph table. He was a major hunk as a young man, and was still hot in the 1980's.
Is he one of only a few actors to play a vampire AND a werewolf????
It's nice that you mentally impaired people can find a common interest.
Thanks r11. Yes John Saxton. Wonder if he had to give Henry Wilson a tumble. I wonder what it was like to hang around with Rock Hudson & friends. Must have been fun to say the least
[quote]Yes John Saxton
It's Saxon. There is no "t".
His real name is Carmine Orrico.
OMG. So much stupidity in one short thread.
Not Sacton. Not Saxton. Saxon. It's not hard.
He held his own in Game of Death with Bruce Lee. Pretty badass, actually.
Thanks for nude pic
LOL, R8. I've crushed on Saxon since I was 6 years old, a billion years ago-- but in that pic, he looks like Ed Rendell.
He makes me long for a simpler time when all Arabs were played by white guys.
John Saxon was a young man in the 1950s. That badly photoshopped picture has him sporting feathered hair and a freaking headband. Fail.
Saw him at CVS, Westwood, a few years ago. Still good looking, had a cap on, not too tall 5' 7 or 5' 8.
He was so hot as Lana's love interest in Imitation Of Life.

Stop it. That was John Gavin. Saxon WAS in "Portrait in Black" with Turner though.
You're all wrong, the correct spelling is John Saxophone and he WAS in Imitation Of Live AND Portrait in Black AND Blood Beast From Outer Space.
He played Phyllis' companion on the MTM show.
Did you know that the guy who was in the eppie where Mary dates a guy based solely on his looks moves from old lady star to old lady star in their final years? He was even Audrey Hepburn's companion upon her death. Wikipedia stops short of calling him a coffin robbing gigolo.

The only FAIL is your unabashed stupidity. John Saxon was in his twenties in the '50s, which is obviously the time this photo was taken, dumbfuck.
R 29 You are so WRONG . How could you mistake John Saxon for Robert Wolders ? Wolders did appear on an MTM episode, and was the companion ob both Oberon , and Hepburn, when they died. But he has nothing to do with Saxon. Don't look alike, names are totally different. Get a clue
Hugh O'Brian didn't marry until he was in his 80s. Wife is is thirty years younger.
He's very short and bald.
Big Obama supporter.
So did Hugh O'Brian have sex with men? Always wondered. He was very sexy and very handsome.
John Saxon was a hunk, but I never thought he was gay or bi.
He plays Jimmy Stewart's son in law in Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation or sumpin' and there's a scene where Saxon is on the beach and takes off this short robe to reveal a tight black speedo.
I must have been 10 when I first saw that movie on tv and I felt my little weenie grow bigger and bigger.
THANKS, JOHN SAXTON SAXON SACON!
My former boss who says he knew Saxon in San Fran way back when thought he was gay. Boss is not gay.
Actor Rick Jason told a writer friend of mine that there were a few 50's & 60's actors who were basically straight, but didn't mind indulging in the homosex now and then, especially if the other guy was famous or could provide a career boost....two he mentioned specifically were Saxon and Greg Palmer.
Who the hell is Greg Palmer ?
I think Hugh O'Brian was gay.
John Saxonn is still hot!
GREG PALMER .....Who is he ?
He used to play golf.
Is this the actor who played Nancy's dad in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies?
LOL Greg or Gregg Palmer.....Universal-International contract player in the 1950's, star of some B westerns and lots of television in the 1960's and 1970's. Friend of Rock Hudson and another Henry Willson discovery. His real name was Palmer Lee.
Played Gloria Talbot's fiance in MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION, for an example.
