Personal Quote:

[on taking over the direction of Mutiny on the Bounty (1962)] I thought, "This is one way of getting rich quick--I get the salary and, at most, it couldn't take two or three months". After I'd signed the contract I found out that in the previous year all they'd had on screen was about seven minutes of film. I spent a year on it. See more »

Trivia:

Born in Russia, Milestone emigrated to the US in 1917 in order to escape being drafted into the Russian army during World War I, but upon his arrival in the US immediately enlisted in the US Army and was sent to France, where he fought until the war's end. See more »
