Ray Milland Quotes
Ray Milland on how he came to
attend the 1946 Oscar ceremonies.
“On the day it dawned, I knew I couldn’t face it and made up my mind not to attend. At breakfast, I hesitantly told Mal of my decision. She slowly put down her fork and just examined me. I didn’t know where to look. Then she said, “I know that you’re erratic, volatile, and the possessor of a foul temper. But I never thought you were a coward!”. Then with a look as cold as a Canadian nun, she said, “You’ll go the that ceremony tonight if we have to put you in a straitjacket.”
“Hell, if I’d jumped on all the dames
I’m supposed to have jumped on, I’d
have had no time to go fishing.”

“As God is my witness, as God is my witness
they’re not going to lick me. I’m going to
live through this and when it’s all over,
I’ll never be hungry again. No, nor any of
my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill.
As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again.”

“At 14, I discovered girls. At that time,
dancing was the only way you could put your
arm around the girl. Dancing was courtship.
Only later did I discover that you dance joy.
You dance love. You dance dreams.”
Gene Kelly Quotes
