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.
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 of 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 a film to view and understand the story.
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.
A Romanian peasant (Anthony Quinn) endures eight years of hardship and war in The 25th Hour, a suspense drama set during WWII and based on C. Virgil Gheorghiu’s best-selling novel.
Falsely branded a jew by the district police officer (Gregoire Aslan) who covets his wife (Virna Lisi), Johann Moritz (Quinn) is declared undesirable and deported to a labor camp as punishment. Rescued by a half-mad colonel (Marius Goring) who declares him the perfect Aryan, Moritz joins the SS, where his work for the Nazis could save his life if the Allies don’t hang him first
Anyone who like good films this is the one, I am sorry about the language
