John Miljan Overview:

Character actor, John Miljan, was born Jovan Miljanovic on Nov 9, 1892 in Lead City, SD. Miljan died at the age of 67 on Jan 24, 1960 in Hollywood, CA .


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".
