MINI BIO:

John Miljan played some of the slimiest villains that ever graced the screen. Under that curly hair and smooth mustache, Miljan had a wolfish smile that oozed charm over many a poor, unfortunate heroine. He had some memorable exchanges with Mae West in "Belle of the Nineties," and was still being principally nasty as late as 1955 in "Pirates of Tripoli".
