THE GEORGE MAHARIS SEX SCANDALS

Older TV buffs will recall ROUTE 66 which ran from October 1960 until March 1964. It involved two young men traveling the country in a Corvette and getting involved in weekly adventures. Martin Milner was one of the two main stars, and later went on to star in the police action show, ADAM 12. But, his handsome co-star, George Maharis. was to make some news of his own for many years, and not always good news. While the dashing actor from a Greek ancestry was so popular that ROUTE 66 never recovered from the fourth season slump after he had to leave the show due to problems said to be from hepatitis, the actor later was arrested by a Los Angeles vice officer in 1968 on a charge of lewd conduct in  a restaurant restroom. The actor was arrested again in 1974 on another charge of having a sex act with a male hairdresser in a gas station restroom. Maharis posted nude for PLAYGIRL, but some other nude photos also emerged of the actor that appeared to be aimed at the Gay market as well. In more recent years, ROUTE 66 co-star Martin Milner disclosed that he knew of Maharis having a Gay secret life for many years despite the fact that Maharis had a marriage to a woman at one point in his life. GeoMaharisTuxgeorge_maharisGeorgeMaharis4george maharis3george maharis1george maharis2 Despite the sex scandals, the actor has remained popular in movies and TV and has released a fairly large catalog of albums and singles as a singer up until appearing to largely retire as an entertainer after 1993. George Maharis is now 83, and remains a popular legend as an old time entertainment icon.
