Anthony Quinn - Greece 2014


The famous scene in which Anthony Quinn's character dances the 'Sirtaki' was in fact filmed in the early 1960's on the beach of the village of Stavros in Crete, but you will see this scene re-enacted at any one of the Greek islands!

Anthony Quinn is well known for playing the role of a Greek man in many films, and when filming 'The Guns of Navarone' on the island of Rodos (Rhodes) he bought land just south of Faliraki, now known as Anthony Quinn Bay. However this land was reclaimed by the Greek Government following a change in Greek property law in 1984.

Having such a famous namesake is often a bonus when visiting the Greek Islands, but I could never dance the Sirtaki as well as the master...
