Screenwriter, director, and producer of motion pictures

After attending film school at the University of Southern California, Milius became a prominent writer and director of motion pictures. Milius-directed movies include “Conan the Barbarian,” “Red Dawn,” and the Emmy winning “Rough Riders” TV movie about Teddy Roosevelt. He also contributed as a writer to “Apocalypse Now,” “Jaws,” and “Dirty Harry.” Commenting on conservative themes in his film “Red Dawn,” where a group of American teenagers take on communist invaders, Milius said, “I was the only person in Hollywood who would dare do this movie. Hollywood is very left wing and I believe in all that rugged individualism hogwash. I knew one thing that would happen. I knew Hollywood would condemn me, that I would be regarded as a right-wing warmonger from then on.”
