Real name: Anthony Rudolph Kaksaka. Born 21.4.1915 in Chihuahua (Mexico).
There are actors whose fame flares as fireworks - instantly and clearly. Others come to her for decades, in desperation to catch this lady capricious. And not always the case in talent or a happy event, even though all of this, of course, has a value. Most often helps to work - incessant, persistent, insistent - and a meeting with the director, the master of his craft. These include the second and Anthony Quinn, who achieved success and international recognition of only two decades after the arrival of the cinema.
However, for so long hitches were objective reasons. Born in Mexico in the Mexican-Irish family, it is up to 12 years do not speak in English. Naturally, the emphasis remained, who all his life prevented him from playing full-blooded Anglo-Saxons. Yes, and in the exterior of this high, . broad-shouldered man with bushy eyebrows over the eastern section under the eyes swollen eyelids and a square jaw, there was something darkly menacing, . and is immediately condemned him to the role of hooligans, . villains or representatives of various 'minorities',
. In fact, Anthony - kind, generous, loyal to friends, though hot-tempered. His undoubted artistic flair: he paints, cuts sculptures made of stone, the master of all kinds of crafts. But all this became known only when the fame came, and before that for many years, acting casual day labor without any hope of recognition.
While Quinn began working in film is very promising. When he was in 1936. made his debut as a gangster in the 'Password', for his shoulders were already training in drama school, working in the theater 'the gate', where Anthony has successfully addressed in the plays 'at the bottom' and 'clean bed' - the manners rooming house. After the filming the fourth film, 'A resident of the plains' (1937), where he played an Indian, was an acquaintance with the stepdaughter director Cecil DeMille - Catherine, also an actress. In the same year she became his wife. But Quinn did not allow myself to take advantage of family ties, and reached a long string of minor roles. He again and again portrayed the Redskins ( 'Buffalo Bill', . 1944, 'Where are we idtiN', . 1945; 'Black Gold', . 1947, . where the only time starred with his wife together, 'Seminole', . 1953 and others), . was a Spaniard in the 'last train from Madrid' (1937), . Filipino in 'return to Bataan "(1945), . Chinese in 'Heaven of China' (1945) and so,
Moving forward is not observed, although the actor has repeatedly drawn the attention of the audience. For example, in the 'incident in Oksbou' (1943), where Quinn played expressively Mexicans, almost does not speak in English, which became one of the three innocent victims of lynching. His temperament tango with Rita Hayworth in the film 'Blood and Sand "(1941) showed that he could play the role of P. Valentino, but he lacked the sweetness of the favorite ladies. Desperate to get to the premiers in the cinema, Queen in 1947. left on Broadway. In the famous play E. Kazan's' Streetcar 'desire', he played Stanley Kowalski in line with M. Brando and, according to experts, was not only no worse, but time and authentic favorite theater audience.
Not surprisingly, it was Kazan invited Quinn to the role Eufemio - itching cunning brother of the hero - in 'Viva Zapata! " (1952). How much the director managed to combine the different manners of their two games Kowalski, but Anthony is the first time waiting for the real success on the screen: he received Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. The following year he again noticed when the actor showed great evil Mexican bandit in "Ride, cowboys!". That same spring he was invited to Italy, where for 11 months, Quinn starred in five films, including playing and Antinous in 'Ulysses' (1954, in our hire - 'Ulysses'), and 'Rusticana' (1953) even sang Alfio.
During the filming of 'Ban on Women' (1953), Anthony met with J. Mazin, who played one of the prostitutes. She introduced the actor to her husband - Federico Fellini. That same evening, the director gave him the script 'Roads' (1954, in our hire - 'They wandered along the roads'). In his dark, malevolent strongman Dzampano, tearing into a circus side-show breast iron chains, as would have merged all the bullies and villains who are so much outplayed Quinn. But here - under the guidance of the Master - he was able to show the evolution of his hero, the awakening of man in the beast. Only after losing his companion, slave day and night comforters, moron Dzhelsominu (J-Mazin), he understood the price of love and devotion to realize the full horror of his unbearable loneliness. Finally it's genuine acceptance - immediate and universal, at once an actor has made a world-class value.
Two years later, Quinn was another 'Oscar' - for the role of Paul Gauguin in "Lust for Life 'Vincente Minnelli - biographical film about Van Goga. And although the actor was here on the screen just six minutes, the image became so convincing in its vitality, that the title of the film may well be attributed to him. Now good luck followed one after another. In the same year, 1956, he brilliantly played Quasimodo in a French film by Jean Delannoy 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame', familiar to us. This classic character Hugo turned his less monstrous than the L. Cheney in 1923-m, and more deplorable than that of H. Lawton in the 1940. Even more memorable Mountain Rivera, who was walking in and on our screens, Ralph Nelson's film 'Requiem for a heavyweight' (1962). The image of an old boxer, who served 17 years in the ring, and now forced to leave his (otherwise - oslepnet!), Actor surprisingly naturally showed the pride of the defeated, lost everything, but maintain the dignity of man.
Finally, the highest success - 'Zorba the Greek' Michalis Kakoyanisa (1965). Quinn managed to pass as if the hero and his infinite patience, and his humanism, and its hedonism. This piece of the sun in human form became visible embodiment of people's power and energy. Execution of them in the final of the Greek Sirtaki dance is impossible to forget, because it expresses the very essence of nature this zhiznelyubtsa, like Antaeus, who draws his strength from contact with the ground. Not surprisingly, although after this masterpiece Quinn starred for nearly forty films, this high-level actor has never failed to reach.
Also in 1965, Anthony was divorced from Katherine after 27 years of marriage (four children have grown, too, became a movie actor) and married the Italian lo-Lanta Addolori, who bore him three sons.
