[1973 comment on Anthony Quinn
] At his best, he's a marvelous actor and he's a very instinctive actor. He has a sort of animal quality, although I think he's got a bit stuck with it. He's a larger than life character. He's that without trying before he starts. He's not the easiest man to work with by any means. He's quite temperamental.
Won two Tony Awards for his only two nominations: in 1973, as Best Actor (Dramatic) for "Butley," a performance he recreated in the film version of the same name, Butley
(1974) , and in 2002, as Best Actor (Play) for "Fortune's Fool."
