7. He played Stanley Kowalski to Uta Hagen's Blanche DuBois in the national tour of the original production of A Streetcar Named Desire. Some critics preferred the Quinn/Hagen pairing to the Brando/Tandy pairing (which they also liked).

9. He was in Warlock with Henry Fonda and Richard Widmark (two of my faves).  Also, who played the Alan Bates part in the stage version (I will try to Google?  I mistakenly thought he won an Oscar for Zorba.  Very versatile actor (though I don't remember him doing comedy).  Enjoy reading all these facts.

10.  Quinn had a speech impediment which Frank Lloyd Wright paid to have corrected.   Quinn attended acting classes as a form of speech therapy.    He loved the classes and quit architecture to pursue an acting career. 

Quinn on Wright: "He said an architect has to talk people into living the way he wants them to live, and you can't convince anybody with the way you're talking. He was such a wonderful man. I was hoping he'd want to adopt me. I loved him. I really loved him."
