John Mills
John Mills
Birthday: Feb 22, 1908
Place of Birth: The Watts Naval Training College, North Elmham, Norfolk, England, UK

Born in a British seaside resort town, John Mills was the son of a mathematics teacher father. Mills' mother worked as a theatrical box office manager, and it was this world, rather than his father's academic milieu, which most attracted young Mills. After brief employment as a clerk in a corn merchant's office, Mills moved to London, where he enrolled at Zelia Raye's Dancing School.
