MORE INFO ON SARAH MILES: Sarah Miles (born 31 December 1941) is an English theatre and film actress.

Sarah Miles was born in the small town of Ingatestone, Essex, in south-east England. She first attended Roedean but at the age of 15 she enrolled at RADA, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Shortly after her completion at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Miles debuted in 1962 as Shirley Taylor in Term of Trial (1962), co-starring with Laurence Olivier, with whom she had a brief affair. The following year, Miles became a well-reputed actress of British New Wave with her roles in Joseph Losey's The Servant (1963) and in Michelangelo Antonioni's Blowup (1966).

After acting in a variety of plays from 1966 to 1969, Miles was cast as Rosy Ryan, the daughter of Tom Ryan in David Lean's 1970 film, Ryan's Daughter. Her performance earned a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.

Although she has denied it, Miles is known for her frequent use of profanity. A November 1971 Cosmopolitan profile was subtitled "She uses words that would make a construction worker blush, but from her they sound refined". A profile in Women's Wear was titled "The Lady with the Truckdriver's Mouth".

Miles is a practitioner of urine therapy. Citing Gandhi, who was an adherent of it, she has followed the tradition for thirty years, maintaining that it has kept her healthy and vigorous.

In 1973, while filming The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing, her manager and associate David Whiting died under mysterious circumstances. During that same time, Miles was reported to be having an affair with Burt Reynolds, with whom she co-starred in the film.

Since 1973, Miles has gone through periods of semi-retirement, only to appear in a film or a TV program. She most recently appeared in Well at the Trafalgar Studios and the Apollo Theatre opposite Natalie Casey.

Miles was married twice to the British playwright Robert Bolt, 1967"??1975 and 19881995. He wrote and directed the film Lady Caroline Lamb, in which Miles played the eponymous heroine.

Her brother is film director, producer and screenwriter Christopher Miles.

MORE INFO ON ROBERT MITCHUM: Robert Mitchum was an underrated American leading man of enormous ability, who sublimated his talents beneath an air of disinterest. He was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, to Ann Harriet (Gunderson), a Norwegian immigrant, and James Thomas Mitchum, a shipyard/railroad worker. His father died in a train accident when he was two, and Robert and his siblings (including brother John Mitchum, later also an actor) were raised by his mother and stepfather (a British army major) in Connecticut, New York, and Delaware. An early contempt for authority led to discipline problems, and Mitchum spent good portions of his teen years adventuring on the open road. On one of these trips, at the age of 14, he was charged with vagrancy and sentenced to a Georgia chain gang, from which he escaped. Working a wide variety of jobs (including ghostwriter for astrologist Carroll Righter), Mitchum discovered acting in a Long Beach, California, amateur theater company. He worked at Lockheed Aircraft, where job stress caused him to suffer temporary blindness. About this time he began to obtain small roles in films, appearing in dozens within a very brief time. In 1945, he was cast as Lt. Walker in Story of G.I. Joe (1945) and received an Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actor. His star ascended rapidly, and he became an icon of 1940s film noir, though equally adept at westerns and romantic dramas. His apparently lazy style and seen-it-all demeanor proved highly attractive to men and women, and by the 1950s, he was a true superstar despite a brief prison term for marijuana usage in 1949, which seemed to enhance rather than diminish his "bad boy" appeal. Though seemingly dismissive of "art," he worked in tremendously artistically thoughtful projects such as Charles Laughton's The Night of the Hunter (1955) and even co-wrote and composed an oratorio produced at the Hollywood Bowl by Orson Welles. A master of accents and seemingly unconcerned about his star image, he played in both forgettable and unforgettable films with unswerving nonchalance, leading many to overlook the prodigious talent he can bring to a project that he finds compelling. He moved into television in the 1980s as his film opportunities diminished, winning new fans with The Winds of War (1983) and War and Remembrance (1988). His sons James Mitchum and Christopher Mitchum are actors, as is his grandson Bentley Mitchum. His last film was James Dean: Race with Destiny (1997) with Casper Van Dien as James Dean.
