Ray Milland Facts
An expert marksman, he won several prestigious English shooting competitions, among them the Risley Match. He almost certainly won the Army Operational Shooting Competition, held at Bisley Camp. There is a shooting club in Risley, but the AOSC is the main shooting competition in the UK.

He is the only winner of the Best Actor Oscar (for The Lost Weekend (1945)) to have uttered not a single word during his acceptance speech opting, instead, to simply bow his appreciation before casually exiting the stage.

Until the age of five, spoke only Welsh.
