Bey Watch

Such characters Turhan would play...
Savvy Arab, suave sir from Bombay
In a tassel draped fez
He would wrassle Montez
While preparing some verbal cliché.

R.I. P. Turhan Bey, March 30, 1922 - Sept. 30, 2012. In his Hollywood heyday in the 1940s, Bey was dubbed the "The Turkish Delight." Of course it was usually Jon Hall who got to manhandle Maria Montez.

This is a still from SUDAN (1945).
