Anthony Quinn

Born: Chihuahua, Mexico | Greatest pop cultural contribution: Quinn was nominated for an Oscar four times, winning twice for "Viva Zapata!" and "Lust for Life." But the role that brought him the greatest sustained notoriety was the larger-than-life Alexis Zorbas in the 1964 film "Zorba the Greek." Quinn was forever after associated with Greek and European roles, playing the same type again in films such as "The Greek Tycoon" and as a Bedouin leader in "Lion of the Desert."
