 Anthony Quinn

Should you wish to know more about Anthony Quinn, click on the links below which explain not only his incredible life and his contribution to the film industry, but to society in general.

 
Anthony Quinn was definitively one of the greatest actors of all time.  I have enjoyed his movies for 50 years and will for the rest of my life.   Thanks Mr Quinn!
 
He portrayed a Greek in the film Zorba the Greek.

In different roles, he was a Filipino, an Eskimo, a Pope in the film The Shoes of a Fisherman, an Arabian in Lawrence of Arabia, to mention a few.

There is so much documented about him that I have selected a couple links to introduce you to the world of Anthony Quinn.

I found that the Biography Channel portrayed his life to perfection and I have included the link below for your convenience.

The film below, In the 25th Hour, is not well known.

When I was a young man I found this film very interesting and I went to YouTube to try to find the entire film.
Unfortunately, the only thing I found from the film is the last few minutes.

I would like you to view this little clip, specifically in the last few seconds, when the photographer asked him to smile.

The expression on his face is something that is very, very difficult to portray or imitate.  

Of course, it is important to try to find the film to view and understand the story.  

Great story, great movie, and Giant Antony Quinn.
Thanks so much for sharing. Any way to see the 25th Hour movie by french director Henri Verneuil ?
Another great Quinn performance.
 
 

The 25th Hour (Preview Clip)

During World War Two, Johann Moritz, a Romanian Jewish peasant, whose pretty wife is lusted after by the village gendarme, is denounced, arrested and sent to a concentration camp.

In the camp, the camp commander mistakes him for a new recruit, a volunteer to the SS and he is drafted into the SS.

Ironically, after the war he is detained by the Allied authorities for his wartime involvement with the SS.

The Secret of Santa Vittoria 1969 Anthony Quinn

MUST WATCH,the late great anthony quinn,one of the truly great acting performances of any actor of his era or any era for that matter,ENJOY

 
This is one of the most entertaining WWII movies I haver seen.
Now over 40 years later, I still remember watching it as a boy and distinctly recall scenes like the passing of the wine bottles among e people of the village.
And what a fabulous performance (again) by Anthony Quinn, the great Mexican-Irish actor who could convincing play almost any ethnicity, it seems.
Even when he overacts or emotes too much, it's actually part of the characterization.
Ana Magnani is also magnificent as always, and Virna Lisi - what a beauty.
 
 
Anna Magnani's perfect portrayal of an Italian peasant woman was superb.
 
I enjoyed every moment of her performance on the screen. Her determined strength and candor toward Quinn's character made me laugh.
 
 
A masterpiece filmed in a little town named Anticoli Corrado, near Roma.
A film with an exceptional cast with Anna Magnani, Virna Lisi, Anthony Quinn, Giancarlo Giannini, Renato Rascel and other great actors. A Story in the 8 September, the day of the Fascism's fall .
And the revenge of nazism versus italian people.

 Zorba The Greek Movie Trailer 

 
I had the great good fortune of having seen Anthony Quinn on Broadway in, of course, Zorba!
What a powerhouse!!! And what was even more wonderful is I got to meet him at the stage door exit. I have to admit he had the most gorgeous eyes and eyelashes I have ever seen on a man.
 

Mikis Theodorakis and Anthony Quinn on 29. July 1995 at the Koenigsplatz in Munich after the concert performance of "Zorba".

 
Can't get enough.  Can't stop crying.  Can't stop watching.  Love you Anthony & MIki.

In The Shoes of the Fisherman (Last Scene)

 
+Humberto Sanchez @shenkorer I agree. Quinn was the greatest all-around actor who could play any role of any ethnic background. I found it embarrassing that the Academy Awards never gave him a lifetime Oscar.
 
 
This film, made in 1968, was based on the novel by Morris West, which envisaged a scenario whereby a Ukrainian Catholic leader called Kiril Lakuta was released from the Gulag and ended up as Pope.
It was inspired by the real case of the head of the suppressed Ukrainian Catholic Church, Metropolitan Iosyf Slipyi, who was released from the Gulag in 1963 and transported to Rome, where he was named a cardinal.
The appearance of this modern day martyr at Vatican Council II caused a sensation
 
 

The last scene from the 1968 movie with Anthony Quinn. Great scene from a great movie FLYERMALL.COM  SPYROS PETER GOUDAS

 

 

 LATINO MASA CREATION BOOK Under normal circumstances all the Latinos will probably beat the “miedra” out of Mr. Goudas for writing a book like this.  However, the comedy within the book is hilarious and the comment that he made saying that he loves playing Mexican music on his harmonica, and by creating the finest base ingredient known as Masa, for Tamales, Arepas, Tortillas and Arepas makes him a hero to all the Latin American countries.
