Sign In. Edit Victor Mature. Showing all 64 items. Making use of his powerful physique, he became associated with "beefcake" scenes involving bondage and torture.

In "Samson and Delilah" he was blinded and forced to turn a gristmill. In "The Robe" he suffered while stretched out on a torture-table inside a Roman dungeon.

In "Zarak" he endured two separate floggings. In "Timbuktu" he found himself staked out, spreadeagle style, under a dangling tarantula.

He served on the troop transport ship Admiral Mayo. He was on Okinawa when the A-bomb was dropped on Japan. Victor's father, Marcello Gelindo Maturi later Marcellus George Mature , a knife sharpener and cutler, was born in in the town of Pinzolo, in the Italian Tyrolean region of Trentino, which was then under the rule of the Austria-Hungary Empire, and was returned to Italian sovereignty in , after WWI.

Victor's mother, Clara P. Ackley , was born in Kentucky. Applying for membership in the swank Los Angeles Country Club at the height of his fame, Mature was turned down and told that the golfing facility did not accept actors as members.

His response: "I'm not an actor - and I've got 64 films to prove it! He attributed his success in Biblical spectacles to his ability to "make with the holy look.

Biography in: "American National Biography". Supplement 1, pp. New York: Oxford University Press, Attended the Kentucky Military Academy.

One of his classmates was future fellow actor, Jim Backus Mr. In Zarak he played perhaps the only title character in the movies to be flogged to death.

Although several sources suggest that Mature's family name was originally Maturi, United States and Austrian birth, immigration, census and other records, as well as Victor Mature himself, are quite clear that as of , the family name was Mature.

In her autobiography, Esther Williams details a passionate affair she had with Mature during the filming of Million Dollar Mermaid According to Williams, her marriage was on the rocks, she needed love and Mature provided all she wanted.

A false story has circulated that George Reeves auditioned for the role of Samson in Samson and Delilah , but lost the role to Mature.

Supposedly, he was given the role of "Wounded Messenger" at the recommendation of Mature, who was very loyal to his friends from his student days at the Pasadena Community Playhouse.

The fact is that Reeves was never under consideration for the role of Samson. However, many of the smaller roles in the film were played by Mature's friends from Pasadena.

Was approached for the role of Sylvester Stallone 's father in Oscar , which eventually went to Kirk Douglas. Despite his physique and his tough guy persona, Mature was a man of many fears and phobias.

Not only did he refuse to wrestle a tame movie lion for Samson and Delilah --a film that Groucho Marx famously said he would not go to see because "the leading man's tits are bigger than the leading lady's"--but during the jawbone battle, the wind machine kicked up some particularly violent gusts, and Mature fled the sound stage for his dressing room, hiding in terror.

According to Cecil B. DeMille biographer Charles Higham , the director publicly humiliated him, using his megaphone to ensure that cast and crew all heard him.

If you're so concerned about fucking privacy, don't become a fucking actor! Actually, I am a golfer. That is my real occupation. I never was an actor.

Ask anybody, particularly the critics. All I know is it makes me laugh. How can you go wrong in a picture that is going to pull in 17 million and maybe as high as 20?

Why, I'm getting fan mail from places all over the world that I've never heard of before. I'm an emotional actor.

When I'm doing a scene, I really believe it. I live the part as long as I'm in the scene. I was OK financially, so I thought what the hell I'll become a professional loafer.

I was never that crazy about acting. I had a compulsion to earn money, not to act. So, I worked as an actor until I could afford to retire.

I wanted to quit while I could still enjoy life I like to loaf. Everyone told me I would go crazy or die if I quit working.

Well, what a lovely way to die. So, what the hell? Now I can retire and enjoy life. Kiss of Death and then Samson and Delilah were very important to my career.

The success of Death, I'm sure, helped me to get Samson and Delilah , and Delilah led to many good roles in pictures like The Robe and Demetrius and the Gladiators Hedy Lamarr , who plays Delilah [in Samson and Delilah ], was gorgeous - George Barnes , who photographed the picture, said to me, "You can shoot her from any angle.

She has no bad angles. Nothing chronic, she was just somehow out of sorts. Let me put it another way: she was not exactly a ball of fire - she just seemed to be loping along.

But we got along okay, worked well together, and the camera picked up her beauty and mystique. In a scene with 3, extras, if one guy in the back was picking his nose, Mr.

DeMille would spot it and stop everything to chew him out. Roach gave Mature his first leading role, as a fur-clad caveman in One Million B.

The film was highly publicized and it raised Mature's profile; Hedda Hopper called him "a sort of miniature Johnny Weissmuller ".

Roach then put him in a swashbuckler set during the War of , Captain Caution The studio people were so pleased with his performance, they bought an option to take over half of Mature's contract with Hal Roach, enabling them to draw on his services for two films a year over three years.

Mature was worried about the direction of his career at this stage, claiming, "nobody was going to believe I could do anything except grunt and groan.

Shortly afterwards it was announced he would appear instead in the musical Lady in the Dark with a book by Moss Hart and songs from Ira Gershwin and Kurt Weill ; Mature played Randy Curtis, a film star boyfriend of the show's protagonist, magazine editor Liza Elliott Gertrude Lawrence.

First, this secretary came out saying 'What a beautiful hunk of man! Finally, I made my entrance. John Barrymore told me I was the only person who could have followed up all that.

The musical debuted on Broadway in January and was a smash hit, making a star of Danny Kaye and Macdonald Carey , and causing fresh appreciation for Mature's talents.

His performance was well received, Brooks Atkinson of The New York Times calling him "unobjectionably handsome and affable".

Mature missed some of the run due to an emergency appendectomy, [20] but ended up playing the role until June. His first film under the contract was to be Bowery Nightingale with Alice Faye.

Filming of The Shanghai Gesture was postponed to enable Mature to finish Screaming , which was a popular success.

This included loan out provisions to RKO. Roach had not wanted to sell, but he was in financial difficulties and his backers insisted.

He had also had six commitments with RKO. This was followed by Footlight Serenade with Grable and Payne. All these films were very popular at the box office.

In July , Mature attempted to enlist in the U. Navy, but was rejected for color blindness. He enlisted in the U.

Coast Guard after taking a different eye test the same day. This meant that when Paramount filmed Lady in the Dark , Mature was unable to reprise his stage role.

After 14 months aboard the Storis , Mature was promoted to the rank of chief boatswain's mate.

In , he did a series of War Bond tours and acted in morale shows. He assisted Coast Guard recruiting efforts by being a featured player in the musical revue Tars and Spars , which opened in Miami , Florida, in April and toured the United States for the next year.

Mayo , which was involved in transferring troops to the Pacific Theater. Mature was honorably discharged from the Coast Guard in November and he resumed his acting career.

In December he signed a new two year contract with Fox. The film was produced by 20th Century Fox, whose head of production Darryl F.

Zanuck was delighted that Ford wanted to use Mature, telling the director:. Personally, I think the guy has been one of the most under-rated performers in Hollywood.

The public is crazy about him and strangely enough every picture that he has been in has been a big box-office hit. Yet, the Romanoff round table has refused to take him seriously as an actor.

A part like Doc Holiday will be sensational for him and I agree with you that the peculiar traits of his personality are ideal for a characterisation such as this.

Mature still had an obligation to make a movie at RKO which dated from before the war. He was announced for Battleground and Mr Whiskers before eventually being cast in a serious drama about football, Interference , which became Easy Living , with Lucille Ball.

Mature's career received a massive lift when borrowed by Cecil B. During filming, Mature was frightened by a number of the animals and mechanical props used in the production, including the lions, the wind machine, the swords and even the water.

Some have been afraid of heights, some have been afraid of water, some have been afraid of fire, some have been afraid of closed spaces.

Some have even been afraid of open spaces -- or themselves. But in all my 35 years of picture-making experience, Mr. Mature, I have not until now met a man who was percent yellow.

While Samson was in postproduction, Paramount used Mature in another film, co-starring with Betty Hutton in Red, Hot and Blue , his first musical in a number of years.

It was directed by Henry Koster who recalled Mature was "nice to work with, amusing. He very much looked out for his money always.

Mature refused to make the movie and was put on suspension by Fox. Back at Fox, he supported Ann Sheridan in a comedy, Stella. Mature injured himself in a motorcycle accident.

He followed this with a movie at Universal, The Veils of Bagdad. The release of this was held up until after that of Mature's next film, The Robe.

The Robe had been in development in Hollywood for over a decade. The Robe , the first CinemaScope movie to be released ahead of How to Marry a Millionaire , which was actually the first film shot in the new process , was an enormous success, one of the most popular movies of all time.

Fox put Mature into another ancient history spectacle, The Egyptian. He was originally meant to co-star with Marlon Brando and Kirk Douglas.

Mature went over to Universal to play the title role in Chief Crazy Horse , in exchange for a fee and a percentage of the profits. Fox wanted Mature to support Tyrone Power and Susan Hayward in Untamed , but Mature refused, claiming he had worked for two years and wanted a vacation.

The studio replaced him with Richard Egan and put him under what they called a "friendly" suspension. Before he started making that, however, he was called back to Fox to appear in the heist thriller, Violent Saturday.

In March , while making Last Frontier , Mature announced he had also signed a contract with United Artists for them to finance and distribute six films over five years for Mature's own company.

In May , Mature signed a two-picture contract with Warwick Productions. Warwick was an English company which had success making films aimed at the international market with American stars; they released their films in the USA through Columbia Pictures.

The first of Mature's films for Warwick was to be Zarak. Both Safari and Zarak were successful. Mature finally made a movie for his own production company, Romina Productions, in conjunction with United Artists and Batjac Productions : China Doll , directed by Frank Borzage , with whom Mature co-produced.

He followed this with an Italian peplum , Hannibal , with Mature in the title role. Mature then retired from acting.

In a interview, Mature said of his decision to retire from acting at age "It wasn't fun anymore. After five years of retirement, he was lured back into acting by the opportunity to parody himself in After the Fox , co-written by Neil Simon.

Mature played "Tony Powell", an aging American actor who is living off his reputation from his earlier body of work.

Mature enjoyed the script while admitting it made no sense to him, saying "All I know is it makes me laugh. Mature was famously self-deprecatory about his acting skills.

Once, after being rejected for membership in a country club because he was an actor, he cracked, "I'm not an actor — and I've got 64 films to prove it!

That is my real occupation. I never was an actor. Ask anybody, particularly the critics. His last feature film appearance was a cameo as a millionaire in Firepower in , while his final acting role was that of Samson's father Manoah in the TV movie Samson and Delilah in In a interview, Mature quipped about his decision to retire:.

I was never that crazy about acting. I had a compulsion to earn money, not to act. So, I worked as an actor until I could afford to retire.

I wanted to quit while I could still enjoy life I like to loaf. Everyone told me I would go crazy or die if I quit working.

Well, what a lovely way to die. Demetrius and the Gladiators wasn't bad. The Robe and Samson and Delilah weren't bad. So what the hell.

Mature was married five times. Mature died of leukemia in at his Rancho Santa Fe, California , home, at the age of He was buried in the family plot, marked by a replica of the Angel of Grief , at St.

Michael's Cemetery in his hometown of Louisville. For his contribution to the motion picture industry, Mature has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame located at Hollywood Boulevard.

Mature is an uninhibited creature of the naive. Simple, crude, and heady - like ketchup or treacle - he is a diet scorned by the knowing, but obsessive if succumbed to in error.

It is too easy to dismiss Mature, for he surpasses badness. He is a strong man in a land of hundred pound weaklings, an incredible concoction of beef steak, husky voice, and brilliantine - a barely concealed sexual advertisement for soiled goods.

Remarkably, he is as much himself in the cheerfully meretricious and the pretentiously serious. Such a career has no more pattern than a large ham; it slices consistently forever.

The more lurid or distasteful the art the better Mature comes across. It told of a Los Angeles band who had taken their name from a newspaper headline describing an incident where furious wasps had ganged up on the actor during a round of golf.
