Millard Mitchell (August 14, 1903 – October 13, 1953) was an American character actor whose credits include roughly thirty feature films and two television appearances. Born in Havana, Cuba, Mitchell appeared as a bit player in eight films between 1931 and 1936. He returned to film work in 1942 after a six-year absence. Between 1942 and 1953, Mitchell was another one of those sturdy supporting characters who greatly added to any of the films he was in. For his performance in the 1952 film, My Six Convicts, Millard Mitchell won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor. Mitchell is also known for other roles: Gregory Peck's commanding officer in the 1949 war drama Twelve O'Clock High, Peck's friend Marshal Mark Strett in the 1950 western "The Gunfighter" and as movie mogul "R.F. Simpson" in the 1952 musical comedy Singin' in the Rain. Mitchell died at the age of fifty from lung cancer in Santa Monica, California and was interred in the Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California.
