Significantly, nothing was heard after that date, and the present assumption is that Milton Reid died in obscurity somewhere in India during the early part of 1987, although no death certificate or confirmation has been received by the family.


The actor's son (same name) was still receiving correspondence sent by his father from Bangalore up to December 1986.


However, various problems arose and in 1981 he was arrested by Indian police for "trespassing, damaging furniture and disconnecting a telephone. " The trouble started when he visited his mother and sister in Bangalore, and there was a dispute with tenants at his sister's bungalow. Police also complained of violence and abuse when they tried to detain him, and there were accusations of a manservant being assaulted. The following year Milton was stated by some reference works to have died from a heart attack, but that was incorrect.


The kindly judge, however, ordered the debt to be repaid at ten shillings (50 pence) per month, even inviting Milton to come back and see him again if he was in any difficulty!Having retired from wresting and with film parts becoming fewer, Milton decided to try his luck in "Bollywood" and in 1980 returned to India.


Although he became a popular and familiar character actor in dozens of films and television shows, the work did not produce immense wealth and in 1965 Milton found himself in court for non-payment of a £52 car repair bill, incurred when he was in Rome shooting spy movie Desperate Mission (1965).


In 1964 Milton challenged The Great Togo (a. k. a.

Harold Sakata) to a wrestling contest to decide who would play the coveted role of Odd-Job in Goldfinger (1964). Unfortunately, Milton had already been killed off as a henchman in the first Bond movie Dr.


No (1962), so the producers were forced to pick Sakata and the "eliminator contest" wasn't needed, although Milton did land the part of Sandor in a later Bond adventure, The Spy Who Loved Me (1977).


On stage he played in pantomime at the London Palladium as the Slave of the Lamp, and in the Italian epics he usually played exotic roles or menacing villains in adventures like The Wonders of Aladdin (1961) (The Wonders of Aladdin) and Spartacus and the Ten Gladiators (1964) (Spartacus and the Ten Gladiators) in which he had a memorable fight to the death with Dan Vadis. However, most people remember Milton Reid as the bodyguard sorting out pretty girls for his boss in a long-running pipe tobacco commercial.


His breakthrough came in 1959 when he was required to shave his head for the role of Yen the pirate in Ferry to Hong Kong (1959). He remained shaven-headed for the rest of his career, also changing his wrestling image to that of The Mighty Chang, an oriental giant.


He also continued to play small parts in films, usually as a tough guy or bodyguard, often as a cruel henchman such as the Japanese executioner in The Camp on Blood Island (1958).


After the war he trained as a wrestler, turning professional in 1952, firstly as a Tarzan-like character called Jungle Boy wearing leopard skin trunks.


It was during this period that he first appeared on film, in the army propaganda feature The Way Ahead (1944).


His son, also called Milton Rutherford Reid, was born in 1941 and worked as a film extra in his teens.


In 1939 he married fashion artist Bertha Lilian Guyett (a marriage that lasted over 40 years), before war service as a cavalry trooper with the 22nd Dragoons.


Milton moved to London in 1936, settling in Shepherd's Bush, and during his early career worked as a commercial traveller.


Although he liked to sign his autographs, perhaps jokingly, "Milton Gaylord Reid" his real name was Milton Rutherford Reid and he was born in Bombay on 29 April 1917. His father Edgar William Reid was a Scottish-born Customs and Excise inspector who had married an Indian lady.
