Leaving the Wedding Altar for the Lion’s Den

Oaky, before I tell you about the lion and his dinner, I have a little quiz for you about one of the actors in this story. He was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. . . as a youth in Southern California he was a sidewalk preacher and played in the band for famous lady evangelist Aimee Semple McPhearson. Cecil B. Demille was his father-in-law. . . he studied architecture with the famous Frank Lloyd Wright and the two became lifelong friends. When he mentioned to Wright that he enjoyed acting, Frank Lloyd Wright encouraged him to give it a try, and the rest, as they say, is history.

He replaced Marlon Brando in the Broadway play Streetcar Named Desire and was so impressive that he was encouraged to get into the movies. He is an Oscar winning actor who acted with more fellow Oscar winners than any other Oscar winner - 28 male Oscar winners and 18 female Oscar winners were in movies with this fellow. His second Oscar was won for a measly 23 minutes-on-screen part, but it was so powerful that he easily won the Oscar. When an older John Barrymore was very ill and needed an immediate blood transfusion it was this fellow who gladly donated his blood.

In this British spy adventure the very young Anthony Quinn, the answer to my quiz, is a double agent working for the British Consul in Africa and also as a henchman for the foreign spy who has kidnapped a high Scotland Yard official.

The traitorous spy wants to learn the secret of a new British weapon - a radio wave death ray. He will kidnap the head of Scotland Yard, and Bulldog Drummond, just hours away from his wedding to his fiancĂ©, will be dragged into a spy thriller that will end in the lion’s den. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
