Ray Milland
RAY MILLAND (1905-1986), born Reginald Alfred John Truscott-Jones
He was a very handsome and talented Welsh actor who went from playing juvenile leads to being a respected leading man and earning an Academy Award for Best Actor. He was also a pretty good director!

The Lost Weekend (1945)Haven't you seen The Lost Weekend (1945)? This is the film Ray got his first and only Oscar for, and he deserved it to be sure.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

The Major and the Minor (1942) He was a very good comedic actor, this one is a must see!
Easy Living (1937) The first Ray Milland movie I saw, and I've been hooked ever since!
The Uninvited (1944) A very spooky story and Ray carries the film very well, and who'd be scared in a haunted house if Ray was with them! ;-)
Wise Girl (1937) This film isn't available on video but I'd be glad to make a copy for anyone interested, because it's one of my favorites and a must see if you are a fan of Ray Milland.
