Examples of Milton in a Sentence

  1. Joshua Greene:

    Milton realized what a wonderful chameleon Marilyn can be in front of the camera, they knowingly jumped off the cliff together, like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

  2. William Blake:

    To me this world is all one continued vision of fancy or imagination, and I feel flattered when I am told so. What is it sets Homer, Virgil and Milton in so high a rank of art? Why is the Bible more entertaining and instructive than any other book? Is it not because they are addressed to the imagination, which is spiritual sensation, and but immediately to the understanding or reason?

  3. Joshua Greene:

    A lot of the pictures were just candids that he shot at an unexpected [time], [That occurred] during the shoot or even between when she was just sitting around and having a cup of tea or coffee or when she was casually relaxing… She was always comfortable with Milton. He wanted to take pictures of her almost as a character actress [in costume]… And these photos weren’t for a particular assignment. They were explorations… In time he got to know her in a more intimate way and she got to see herself portrayed in ways other than Hollywood style.

  4. Yvonne Craig:

    It was a wonderful experience, the crew liked one another, the cast liked one another. It doesn't happen often, and when it does, it's a joy to go to work every day. I got to work with people that I would never have the chance to work with. We had Ethel Merman, I would never have met Milton Berle, I got to work with Milton Berle, and Milton Berle was a delight.

  5. Joshua Greene:

    My mother had a dream, she woke up my father and was like, ‘You need to call Marilyn. You need to call her right now. I don’t know what it is, but you need to call her. They haven’t spoken — we’re talking from 57 to 62. He called her on the phone and they talked for two and a half hours. They both loved being on the phone. Milton said, ‘Look, I’m going to Paris to do a collection, I’ll be back in a month. I’ll come out and see you and we’ll spend some time together.’ Two and a half weeks by and he was still in Paris. A friend called and said, ‘Have you seen the paper? Marilyn was found dead in her home in California.’.
