An excellent movie, 26 December 2002
Author: wild-plum from oakland, CA
In the late sixties, bob dylan was asked how he came to write the song
"Quinn the Eskimo". He replied that he'd seen this movie in which Tony Quinn
played an Eskimo. The Savage Innocents is that movie. (In a much later book
about his lyrics, Dylan says he doesn't remember how the song came about-
like many of us, ol' bob's memory ain't what it used to be.)
This is the most accurate portrayal of Eskimo customs ever to come out of
Hollywierd. It contrasts the cultural practices of Inuit and North American
societies at a time when many Inuit people had not yet encountered the white
man and his ways. The movie asks the question "who is savage and who is
innocent?" The movie is full of memorable performances and "sound bites".
You'll come away with a new appreciation for traditional Eskimo culture and
more than a few new quotable quotes.
When Quinn the Eskimo gets here, everybody's gonna jump for joy!

Holiday in a warm place, no doubt, Patrick.
Yes dogs on beds can help, as in a previous squib.
By the way, nobody has responded to my question:
> What was that film

> invited to some igloo,
> thawing feet between
> eskimo breasts?
I spose I could google an answer...
