8 GKEELKY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Sat., April 21,1973 HOLLYWOOD HOTLINE Quinn has much to say in books By NANCY ANDERSON Copley News Service HOLLYWOOD - Anthony Quinn came in from the golf course where he'd been learning to drive (not with a golf club but with a golf cart for a scene in the Hal Wallis picture "The Don Is Dead") and submitted himself to questioning. It went this way: Q.: Mr. Quinn, your autobiography, "The Original Sin," is a best seller, but it only covers your first 21 years. How many more books will you have to write to cover the most interesting aspects your life to date? A.: Well, I have about four books done. I hope I'll be through with the autobiographical nonsense with three more books. Actually, I started the second book now, and I'm up to page about 500 or 600, and I've only covered up to 1952, so. ... Q.: Which volume is going to be the most interesting? A.: That's difficult. I think interestingly. ... I think the first book, "The Original Sin," was very revealing. I think it's a much better book than people -- you know -- I don't think people want to hear the actor, his fable, kind of destroyed. On its level of importance, I think "The Original Sin" had something interesting to say. I hope I have as much to say in the next few volumes. It will take about four more books to get the complete statement made. Q.: How long did it take you to write "The Original Sin?" A.: Well, I actually wrote four books before I wrote it. I have a book just on the experience in "Zorba." I have a whole book. Each picture is a whole life unto itself. I could write a whole book about "Lawrence of Arabia," I could write a whole book about "Lust for Life." Each picture could be a book, especially where the characters have affected me. I'm doing a picture now, my next one, about this very thing. My next picture is about a man who goes to Mexico to play Pancho Villa, and it's the effect the character, Villa, lias upon the actor. In a sense it's almost -- not autobiographical -- but in a sense it's saying what I know, that characters have such an effect upon me and my life that I can find almost a whole book in each character. The main characters, the, important characters I've played like in "Requiem for a Heavyweight," like in "Lust for Life," like in "Lawrence of Arabia," "The Pope" certainly, they affected my life. I guess I'll quit writing about myself when I feel I've made the complete statement. As I said, I've got four books already written. I'm now writing my next one. It's called "Mamma Borgia" and it's about a woman who had a tremendous influence upon my life. She just passed away at 83 years old. She was kind of a fortune teller and an adviser to people in all walks of life. So that's my next book. Q.: Of the characters you've played, which one has GREAT LUNCHES BEAUTIFUL FASHIONS MONDAYS 12 NOON- 1:30 P.M.

Come see for yourself enjoy a nice relaxing evening or Carry Out Delivery had the strongest influence upon your personal life and character? A.: "Zorba." I think "Zorba" has had the greatest effect on me. He was a man who didn't live by the rules, and I tend to think he was right. I think rules were made for ... ( a reflective silence). Q.: Did you live by the rules before you played "Zorba?" A.: (Laughing.) I've always tried to live Just a little outside of the rules! Q.: Is there anyone whose skin you'd like to try on whom you haven't done yet in a picture? A.: Yes, yes, yes..There's a man named Henri Christophe. He was a black man and the emperor of Haiti. Q.: Do you think, since he was black and you are not, it will be more difficult to get into his skin? A.: No, I don't think so. No. Because it's still a problem of leadership, and something I'd like to investigate. Again, it's a character with great responsibility. Color is only skin deep. I think that inside most men are alike. So I think that color is not a problem. Q.: Some of the black community might disagree, because I understand you are already getting a little static.... A.: Not a little! I'm getting a lot. A lot of static. And it might be that I may give in to it. When I really come up to bat. It will depend on where we are politically and emotionally at that time. If I feel that it's best for the black community to have a black actor in the role, I'll step aside. I think they need all the help they can get, and I don't want to get in the way. If a year from now things haven't improved for the community and they haven't progressed and that we haven't helped them to progress, I think I'll step aside and give it to a black actor. Elaine May to film 'Mikey and Nicky' Elaine May will produce and direct her own original screenplay entitled "Mikey and Nicky" for Paramount Pictures, it was announced today by Robert Evans, Paramount Executive Vice-President in Charge of World-Wide Production.

RARE BUTTERFLY FACING DANCER OF EXTINCTION The rarity of Britain's Large Blue has encouraged collectors to net the few specimens slill at large and it is feared it will become extinct unless protected by legislation.
