Early Life[edit]

The current article makes no mention of his mother. Can no one find a source with her name? It begins: "Hamilton's stepfathers were Carleton Hunt and Jesse Spalding; his stepmother was June Howard, with whom Hamilton said he had repeated sexual relations when he was age 12, shortly after she married his father, and again later when he was an adult." His mini-biography on IMDb says his mother was "gregarious Southern belle beauty Anne Lucille (Stevens) Potter Hamilton Hunt Spaulding". I don't know if IMDb is an acceptable source for Wikipedia, but some mention of her should be in this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:184:C300:5C80:A4D5:F82C:ACF9:2D01 (talk) 23:19, 23 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Surely, Jesse Spalding, with whom Hamilton has said he had an affair when he was 12, was his stepmother, not his stepfather, as quoted in this article?

I'm George's younger brother by 13 months. The article says that George is the youngest son of George "Spike" Hamilton. That is incorrect. He is the oldest son. I am Dad's youngest son. At the bottom of the paragraph the article goes on to contradict itself by saying that "George has a younger brother, David Hamilton" which is, of course, correct as I just mentioned. Also, I see in the article it says that he started his career in 1952 in "Lone Star". That's wrong. He was never in "Lone Star". George didn't start acting until 1959 when he made "Crime and Punishment USA". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:31, 6 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Removed from article:

Notable for playing the title role in the popular series of Zorro films.

Only film I am aware of is the 1981 parody Zorro, The Gay Blade.
This will be a very long article if it grows to encompass all of Hamiliton attachments.

This is a biography! Duh! The Bird romance tidbid goes back, and hopefully stays, Romances are supposed to be part of one's life!

I believe this page should say something about his commercials that play off the fact that he is tanned to the point of being amazingly leathery. Mah Freend Amee 15:22, 23 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can somebody clarify the language in the following line. It doesn't scan at all.

Hamilton is also recently noted for his appearances in Ritz Cracker and Wheat Thins Toasted Chips commercials and ads with Stacy Keibler, who in Dancing with the Stars, was his off-screen "sweetheart", with the tag line "I know toasted".

another film[edit]

I saw George Hamilton filming a movie in Old Tuscon, Az around July 1966 with Max Baer and Ingrid Stevens, I believe it was called The Long Trail Home, or The Long Ride Home, and I have never been able to find it for viewing.

filmography order[edit]

Why is it that in some actor's articles, their filmographies are listed chronologically, and yet in others they're listed in reverse chronological order? For the purpose of uniformity, shouldn't we fix one or the other? Trigear 04:05, 8 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


This article says he was born in Blytheville, but the box at the top right says Memphis. Which is right? (talk) 20:57, 29 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Blytheville till age 36????[edit]

He certainly didn't live in Arkansas till age 36. As I recall, his autobiography talks about living in New York, attending eastern boarding school, etc. (talk) 03:50, 19 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is no mention of him in the Army around 1962. My father was his 1st Sgt. and drinking buddy. This was in Germany at a post called Wilflecken. He was company clerk. Once when he and my father, John E. Christopher, were in George's sports car they ran into a bridge abutment. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:34, 26 September 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

My One and Only[edit]

The movie "My One and Only" is based on the early life of George Hamilton. Some mention might be appropriate. (talk) 19:01, 18 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Orphaned references in George Hamilton (actor)[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of George Hamilton (actor)'s orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 11:04, 5 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Well: Not the right George Hamilton[edit]

I deleted this portion:

George appeared in the 1951 film The Well, directed by Leo Popkin and Russell Rouse.[1] (Doing further research will show that this film is not listed among his achievements on other sites.)

The debate within the article is not appropriate, but examining the link makes it clear that it was another actor named George Hamilton, who was active in small roles between 1948 and 1953, that was in The Well. So it should be deleted in any event. Fenevad (talk) 20:34, 28 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
