Zorba the Greek
(Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment)

The 1964 winner of Academy Awards for Best Cinematography, Supporting Actress (Lila Kedrova) and Art Direction/Set Decoration, Zorba the Greek was also nominated for Best Picture, Actor (Anthony Quinn), Director and Writing.

When he hires and eccentric stranger named Zorba to work in a mine, he has inherited on Crete, Basil, a timid English writer (Alan Bates), find himself drawn into a world far more exciting and dangerous than any he has known.

Zorba courts too many women, endures perils in the mine that scare off the other workers, and defies a group of men seeking vengeance on a young widow who has rejected their advances. Eventually, Zorba's undying exuberance forces Basil to undergo a transformation into becoming a more active participant in his own life.

Zorba the Greek is arguably one of the most passionate studies of human nature ever put to film.
