Peter Ustinov Birthday


Recommended Posts



Nice to see TCM airing some Peter Ustinov films on the anniversary of his birthday today.

I've always liked him. An amazingly gifted person.

Among the movies today on TCM, he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for "Topkapi."

Nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "Quo Vadis."

Happy B-Day, Mr. Ustinov!

>He actually managed to stand out in the movie Spartacus, while working with Olivier, Laughton, Douglas, and other fine actors. Always interesting to watch.


And for very good reason: Kubrick allowed his camera to linger on Ustinov's pliable features for countless shots of his reacting to what the other characters said and did. Ustinov and the Academy's voters both knew the old saying that acting is reacting.
