    Synopsis


    The Savage Innocents
    Anthony Quinn added Eskimo to the many ethnic types he portrayed on film with this drama about a clash of cultures from director Nicholas Ray. Inuk (Quinn) is a typical Eskimo hunter, living proudly as his ancestors did, eking out an existence on the frozen Canadian tundra. When Inuk takes his wife and mother-in-law to a trading post to exchange furs, the family meets a friendly priest (Marco Guglielmi). In time-honored Eskimo custom, Inuk offers the missionary his wife's sexual favors. Offended by the man's rejection, Inuk kills him. Having broken Western law, Inuk is pursued by two Mounties (Peter O'Toole and Carlo Giustini). Slowed down by his wife's elderly mother, he sends the woman out on the ice to perish, another of his people's ancient traditions. The police capture Inuk, but the lawmen and their prisoner encounter severe weather. The Savage Innocents (1959) was the feature debut of actor O'Toole, who objected to the overdubbing of his voice in the finished film. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      Anthony Quinn is truly a gifted actor. He has played innumerable character roles from a simple Mexican peasant to a desert Arab chieftain and every conceivable culture in between. I think, at last count, he has portrayed in excess of 26 different nationalities over his fascinating acting career. His ability to assume the divergent mannerisms and ethnicities with such ease and believability in each varied role, is a tribute to his acting skill. His understanding of these varied people allows him to portray real and believable characters, in every sense of the word which helps to hold and continue our interest throughout his films to their conclusion. "The Savage Innocents" is an unexpected treat and a vivid and uncompromising look into a world we would not have experienced if it were not for Anthony Quinn. You will be amazed at mankind's adaptability as a survivor and you will enjoy this rare look at the people who live in the land of ice and constant exposure to the dangers of survival in the most unforgiving of climates on the face of our earth.

      Great Nicholas Ray Film

      Nicholas Ray's Eskimo epic receives a welcome blu-ray disc release. Sadly, it looks to have been transferred from a somewhat dated master with limited restoration and the release contains no extras. The film is very much worth seeing all the same. Cautiously recommended.
