Zorba in America
25 August 2012 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Anthony Quinn basically repeats his signature role from ZORBA THE Greek as a good-natured, large-living gambler and adviser in sexual matters -- invariably in the context of classical mythology.

This is not to say that Daniel Mann has directed a remake. This time, Quinn is married to Irene Pappas and their son is dying. The story's plot concerns Quinn's struggles to raise enough money to take his son to the mountains of Greece, where he imagines the boy will recover. The story is offered deliberately as a classical tragedy written small.

The cast is filled out with fine actors, including Inger Stevens in her last role, and Sam Levene -- best known for playing small-time Runyonesque crooks in the 1940s. However, the point of this movie is to see Quinn playing Zorba struggling against fate. and not an Englishman's civilized repression.
