Turhan Bey Obituary

OBITUARY

 Turhan Bey, movie actor known as ‘Turkish Delight,’ dies at 90

.

 .

Turhan Bey, 90, an actor whose exotic good looks earned him the nickname of Turkish Delight in films with Errol Flynn and Katharine Hepburn before he left Hollywood for a quieter life in Vienna, died Sept. 30 in the Austrian capital after a long struggle with Parkinson’s disease. His friend Marita Ruiter, who exhibited Bey’s photos in her Luxembourg gallery, confirmed his death, according to the Austria Press Agency.

.

Born in Austria as Gilbert Selahettin Schultavey, the son of a Turkish diplomat, Bey assumed his stage name shortly after moving to the United States from Vienna with his Jewish Czech mother to escape the Nazis and being discovered by talent scouts from Warner Bros. studios.

.

Bey was celebrated for supporting roles alongside Flynn, Hepburn, John Wayne, Peter Lorre and other film greats of the 1940s. His popular name of Turkish Delight was a reference to his suave good looks, which made him an ideal partner to exotics like Maria Montez in escapist Technicolor adventure fantasies set in faraway places.

.

He starred or had major roles in films such as A Night in Paradise, Out of the Blue and The Amazing Mr. X until the popularity of the genre faded in the 1950s.

.

Moving back to Vienna, he made living as a photographer and occasional stage director, again returning after a brief film and television comeback in the 1990s that earned him an Emmy nomination for his performance as the venerable Turval in the Babylon 5 space fantasy TV series.

The Evening at the Barn series begins with a special screening of director Iain Kennedy’s acclaimed documentary, Palace of Silents on Wednesday, October 10 at 7:30 PM. The film travails the fascinating history of the Silent Movie Theatre on Fairfax Avenue. The documentary was shown to a “standing room only” crowd at Cinecon this year, so Hollywood Heritage is thrilled to be able to bring this fascinating film to The Barn.

FILM NEWSLETTERS

“The Silent Treatment”

Sept/Oct 2012

 

 

 

It’s time for your silent vitamin fix with our new SEP/OCT 2012 issue!  Lots of good things to read about as usual and fall is our favorite time of the year as silent film screenings seem to spike all over the city with the approach of Halloween.  We usually don’t spill the beans on what you will find in our new release, but Conrad Veidt is front and center in our “Silent Spotlight” section, so we had to include a listing of some of his signature silent pictures that are happening in Greater Los Angeles in October.  You’ll find the titles, dates, and locations posted below for easy reference.
.
Since Conrad is so well represented around town, we feel comfortable playing host to the other silent horror icon, Lon Chaney Sr., in our TST screening of The Monster (1925) taking place October 10th, 2012 at The Silent Movie Theater; in November we’ll present an equally odd picture called The Monkey Talks (1927) starring Olive Borden that returns us to our regular “first Wednesday” spot falling on November 7th.
