Chill Wills

“Always wondered what they draw in a drawing room – pictures or guns.”


The term “Drawing Room” comes from the 16th Century “Withdrawing Room”, an area of a house where the ladies would withdraw after dinner.

  1. Vienna, Chill Wills could deliver lines and more. Chill had an incredible voice and he is one of my favorite character actors. I seem to always remember him as Jim Ed Love in THE ROUNDERS(filmed 1964, released 1965). My earliest memory of him is as Manchester Montford in TARZAN’S NEW YORK ADVENTURE(filmed 1941-42, released 1942), which I first viewed on tv on Memphis, Tennessee’s WREC Channel 3 EARLY MOVIE in 1964. In his colorful way he helped Tarzan(Johnny Weissmuller), Jane(Maureen O’Sullivan), and Boy(Johnny Sheffield) save the day.
