James Millican (February 17, 1911 – November 24, 1955) was an American actor with over 200 film appearances mostly in western movies.

Millican was the son of Fred S. Millican, a circus owner, and Dorothy Millican.[1]

Millican was a close associate of cowboy star "Wild" Bill Elliott, staging a number of personal-appearance rodeos on Elliott's behalf. Millican was sent to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's dramatic school directly after graduating from University of Southern California.


Millican died November 24, 1955, aged 45 years, and is buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Glendale), California.[1]
