Ray Milland Project

Ray Milland is an Oscar-winning actor who worked from the late 1920s to the early 1980s. A contract player for Paramount, he was forced to take the lead role in The Lost Weekend because of turning down a role in another film. The one he turned down failed, and his punishment earned him his Oscar. In his career he’s been the male lead in urbane romantic comedies, a sophisticated villain, and a tyrannical father. He’s also had to deal with the occasional chimpanzee.

My intent is to honor the memory of this great actor by reviewing everything obtainable.
