Ray Milland Quotes: “…I knew I couldn’t face it…”By
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.”
