  • Born to American parents in Cuba, Millard Mitchell enjoyed moderate success as a New York-based stage and radio actor in the 1930s. His first appearances before the cameras were in a handful of Manhattan-filmed industrial shorts; his Hollywood feature-film bow was in MGM's Mr. and Mrs. North (1941). After the war, Mitchell toted up an impressive list of film credits, usually cast in sarcastic, phlegmatic roles. While he was afforded top billing in 1952's My Six Convicts, Mitchell's best screen role (at least in the eyes of MGM-musical buffs) was movie mogul R. F. Simpson in the splendiferous Singin' in the Rain (1952). Millard Mitchell died suddenly of lung cancer at the age of 50.

Johnny "High Spade" Williams
Well, that's the way it was. The old man sired two sons. One was no good... never was any good. Robbed a bank... a stagecoach. Then when he came home and wanted to hide out, the old man wouldn't go for it. So Dutch shot him... in the back.

Talking pictures, that means I'm out of a job. At last I can start suffering and write that symphony.
R.F. Simpson
You're not out of job, we're putting you in as head of our new music department.
Cosmo Brown
Oh, thanks, R.F.! At last I can stop suffering and write that symphony.
R.F. Simpson
Cosmo, remind me to give you a raise.
Cosmo Brown
Uh, R. F.?

I can't quite visualize it. I'll have to see it on film first.
