    I didn t even know he wrote an autobiography, but I stumbled upon it at my local library It was a great read and quite funny He talks about his childhood in the English countryside, going to military school and then making it into the film business I would highly recommend it

    No one grimaces like Ray Milland Ray Milland invented the grimace When he reacts to something going badly, or some fool saying something idiotic, he looks as if a brand new ulcer had suddenly sprouted in his stomach So you know how Milland spent the final 30 years of his career playing cranky, sarcastic characters Turns out he wasn t acting It s fantastic to see up on the screen, much less so in a book Gripe, gripe, gripe Throw in a handful of casually homophobic remarks and you wind No one grimaces like Ray Milland Ray Milland invented the grimace When he reacts to something going badly, or some fool saying something idiotic, he looks as if a brand new ulcer had suddenly sprouted in his stomach So you know how Milland spent the final 30 years of his career playing cranky, sarcastic characters Turns out he wasn t acting It s fantastic to see up on the screen, much less so in a book Gripe, gripe, gripe Throw in a handful of casually homophobic remarks and you wind up with an autobiography that s generally unpleasant and also not very illuminating I love him as an actor, and he even directed a few pretty good movies, including PANIC IN YEAR ZERO but this book is for the birds

    I have to say I was disappointed in this 1974 memoir by Academy award winning actor Ray Milland He comes across as the stereotypical old man who comes out of his house and yells at the neighborhood kids to be quiet A product of the times in which it was published, he complains at length in several areas of the book about those unwashed, disgusting hippies Obviously he was one of those men who thought that young men who had long hair were pinko commies He offers surprisingly little about the I have to say I was disappointed in this 1974 memoir by Academy award winning actor Ray Milland He comes across as the stereotypical old man who comes out of his house and yells at the neighborhood kids to be quiet A product of the times in which it was published, he complains at length in several areas of the book about those unwashed, disgusting hippies Obviously he was one of those men who thought that young men who had long hair were pinko commies He offers surprisingly little about the major movies he was in, except for his Oscar winning picture, The Lost Weekend He claims that he just coasted along in movies on his good looks and didn t really have any acting talent until this picture came along He mentions almost nothing about the making of the Alfred Hitchcock movie Dial M For Murder except in a passing comment about Hitchcock later in life Rumor has it that he had an affair with Grace Kelly during the making of the film, so this might be the reason, although he certainly hints around that he was unfaithful to his wife on occasion Otherwise, he complains about the abominable food at the hotel in this country or that one, and seems like he was, unfortunately, an unpleasant person 36 of 100 books pledged to read review in 2015

    Milland is my favorite actor And connected with this book is the only occasion when I could believe in a benevolent God I was in London and I found this book on the shelf of the apartment I was staying in And for once in my life I was really tempted to steal this book I resisted And the very next day I found this book literally on the street, where a guy was selling books Amazing And it is a great joy to read.
