| Ray Milland teaches in college
The first of Ray Milland's two television series was this situation comedy The Ray Milland Show. Milland played a college professor who was at an institute of higher learning that didn't look too much different from the schools that Kurt Russell went to when he was a Disney star. Phyllis Avery was Milland's wife and the show lasted from 1953 to 1955. The comedy came from Milland and wife interacting among the students, other faculty, and faculty wives.

Milland like so many other of Hollywood's leading men was getting less and less work in Hollywood as the studios unloaded their contract players. He tried television as so many did, some flopped on it, others like Lucille Ball had their careers made by it. Milland fell somewhere in between.

The Ray Milland Show didn't set the small screen on fire. It was pleasant enough, but not like anything about it truly stood out. In fact in the midst of its television run, Ray Milland did on the big screen one of his most remembered parts, Dial M For Murder.

Ironic isn't it.
