Tomas Milian Quotes:

Raphael: For what is an artist in this world but a servant, a lackey for the rich and powerful? Before we even begin to work, to feed this craving of ours, we must find a patron, a rich man of affairs, or a merchant, or a prince or... a Pope. We must bow, fawn, kiss hands to be able to do the things we must do or die.
Raphael: We are harlots always peddling beauty at the doorsteps of the mighty.
Michelangelo: If it comes to that, I won't be an artist.
Raphael: [scoffs] You'll always be an artist. You have no choice.

Linda Moreno: Do you always gin up your women?
Jed: You're more than just a woman to me. You're like a shower of milk from heaven!

Jed: [eating a bowl of pasta] Whoever thought of spaghetti was a genius. He must have made a damn fortune.

Tomas Milian Facts
After the tremendous success of Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars (1964) starring Clint Eastwood, Milian grubbed up his own image and propelled himself to stardom in like fashion in such classic "spaghetti westerns" as The Ugly Ones (1967), The Big Gundown (1966) with Lee Van Cleef, Face to Face (1967), Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot! (1967) and Run, Man, Run (1968).

In most of his Italian comedies from the 1970s, his voice was dubbed by Ferruccio Amendola, who provided a strong Roman accent. However, Milian had real knowledge of Roman slang and generally wrote his own lines.

He decided to become a movie actor after seeing James Dean in East of Eden (1955).
