Dear Friends:           

Criminently!  You found the Darby Hinton Home Page!  This page was created for all friends and fans of Darby Hinton.    

My father, actor Edgar Latimer "Ed" Hinton, Jr. (1927-1958), was a native of Wilmington, North Carolina.  Ed Hinton appeared in the role of Special Agent Henderson in the 1950s syndicated television series 'I Led Three Lives', starring Richard Carlson and was based on the espionage activities of Herbert Philbrick.  Ed Hinton, particularly active in television westerns, perished in an airplane crash on Catalina Island, when I was fourteen months old. 

I became personally close to Fess Parker, my Daniel Boone "Pa", and subsequently a Los Angeles, Santa Barbara area businessman.  "Pa was a great guy to grow up with."  I was also a godson of actor Charlton Heston and former  Arkansas Lieutenant Governor Winthrop Paul Rockefeller.

I attended high school at the American School in Switzerland in Lugano, Switzerland, after attending Emerson Junior High School in West Los Angeles.  I began college on a cruise ship, the World Campus Afloat Institute for Shipboard Education, which travels around the world to study different cultures.

I returned to California to continue studies at the Church of Christ-affiliated Pepperdine University near Malibu, while I still made television appearances. I am also skilled in the martial arts.

Welcome to the Darby Hinton Page where you can learn much more! Thank you for stopping by.
