Turhan Bey, R. I. P.

1940s Hollywood Actor Dies In Austria At 90: Turhan Bey, an actor whose exotic good looks earned him the nickname of "Turkish Delight" in films with Errol Flynn and Katherine Hepburn before he left Hollywood for a quieter life in Vienna, has died. He was 90.


  1. If I'd had to guess, I would have said that Turhan Bey probably died years ago. Little did I know. Rest in peace.

  2. He live a long life: until 90. Most of his popularity was in the 1940s; very few people remember him today.

  3. I knew his name even back in grade school, although I doubt I ever saw any of his films. I think his name was used in a LOTR parody.

    Sadly one of those people who fell into my own "I thought he died long ago" category.....
