In the 1950s, Milošević and his friend Stevan Marković were involved in a street fighting in Belgrade. They met Alain Delon, who was filming a movie in Belgrade. Delon hired Milošević and Marković as bodyguards, and Milošević later moved to Hollywood, California. There he met gangster Nikola Milinkovich. Milinkovich gave Milos $200,000 to fight for him in street fights, from which Milinkovich made $2,000,000.
As a young Hollywood actor, Milos is best known for his performance as a Soviet naval officer in the 1966 comedy The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming, as well as for his titular role in the 1966 Esperanto horror movie, Incubus.
Personal life and death
In 1965, Mickey Rooney's then-wife Barbara Ann Thomason (stage name Carolyn Mitchell) began an affair with Milos. The two were found dead in Rooney's Los Angeles house in 1966. The official inquiry found that Milos had shot Thomason with Rooney's chrome-plated .38 caliber revolver and then committed suicide. The official inquiry provoked rumors that they were actually both murdered in revenge for having an affair.
