I Needed a Pick-Me-Up and Then I Remembered Anthony Quinn Dancing to...

[ Edited ]

the song "Zorba the Greek" and another song by Mikis Theodorakis, "Strose to Stroma Sou."

Quinn was 80 years old when he joined an unknown participant/dancer and the composer of "Zorba the Greek," Mikis Theodorakis, on stage in Munich in 1995.  Theodorakis has and conducts his own orchestra in the clip.

 

So exhilarating (I think).

 

LIVE!

Goldie76:  Thank you so much for posting this.  He was such a magnificent man!  Saw him perform Zorba on Broadway many, many years ago and it was something I will never, ever forget.  Watch the movie once every year.  I had a mad crush on him and Yul Brynner.  Those were the days when men were really men.

Here is the iconic end scene from the famous movie Zorba the Greek in which Anthony Quinn (who played the part of Zorba) dances with his cerebral boss, played by Alan Bates.

 

The Bates character learns to participate in "the dance of life."

My mom absolutely loved this movie!

 

 

 

She loved it so much, that she bought the album soundtrack to it.

 

 

I can recall her playing the record and dancing the Dance of Life in the living room.

The Sky looks different when you have someone you love up there.
