Made his professional acting debut at the London Hippodrome in The Five O'Clock Girl in 1929. Enlisted in the British Army in the Royal Engineers (later commissioned as a Second Lieutenant) but medically discharged in 1942 for a stomach ulcer. Made his acting career playing traditionally British heroes, such as Scott of the Antarctic in 1948, and became associated with war drama including The Colditz Story in 1954 and Above Us The Waves in 1955. His career slumped when he took two years off after making Morning Departure in 1950, but revived with Hobson's Choice in 1954. Often acted alongside his daughters, Juliet and Hayley; all three appeared together in an episode of The Love Boat. Was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 1960, in addition to being knighted by the Queen in 1976. In 1999, at the age of 91, he became the oldest member to join the entertainment charitable fraternity, the Grand Order of Water Rats. Released a documentary film in 2000 entitled Sir John Mills' Moving Memories, containing extensive home footage and interviews with the family. Named a Disney legend by the Walt Disney Company in 2002. Received a Fellowship of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), their highest award, in 2002.
