About Anthony Quinn (1915– 2001)

Anthony Quinn was a Mexican-born leading actor; in films since 1936. Before going into acting, Anthony Quinn went through several careers which included working as a butcher, a street corner preacher and a prize fighter. He was signed to work exclusively for Paramount, appearing in their movies; almost always as a gangster or an Indian. During the Paramount years, he was cast in several Cecil B.

During his life time, he was married three times and fathered 13 hildren. One son, Chris, tragically drowned at age three in W.C. Field's swimming pool.
