Anthony Quinn added Eskimo to the many ethnic types he portrayed on
film with this drama about a clash of cultures from director Nicholas
Ray. Inuk (Quinn) is a When Inuk takes his wife and mother-in-law to a
trading offers the missionary his wife's sexual favors. Offended by the
man's rejection, Inuk kills him. Having broken Western law, Inuk is
pursued by two Mounties (Peter O'Toole and Carlo Giustini). Slowed
down by his wife's elderly mother, he sends the woman out on the ice to
perish, another of his people's ancient traditions. The police capture
Inuk, but the lawmen and their prisoner encounter severe weather. The
Savage Innocents (1959) was the feature debut of actor O'Toole, who
objected to the overdubbing of his voice in the finished film.
