BIOGRAPHY

Former jockey turned romantic leading man of the 1930s, predominantly in light comedies and occasional mysteries. Milland proved his serious dramatic abilities with an Oscar-winning role as an alcoholic writer in Billy Wilder's "The Lost Weekend" (1945), but failed to match his success in later years. He concentrated on directing for TV and film in the 1960s and returned as a character actor in the 70s, notably in "Love Story" (1970).

Had been the first choice for the film, "Trading Places" starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Ackroyd, but his declining health prevented him from playing the role. The part went to Don Ameche.
