By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) Can a white actor portray a black hero in today's race-conscious world? Anthony Quinn thinks so. But long before he has filmed the bi- ography of Haitian emperor Henry Christophe, he has en- countered a flurry of opposition. Quinn recently announced his Intention to fulfill a long- planned project: to film the life of Christophe, who ruled Haiti in the last century. The result was protests from black writ- ers, directors and actors who argued that only a black should play Christophe. Director-actor Davis wrote the New York Times: "My black children need black heroes on wliich to model their behavior. Tony, for all my admiration of him as a man and as a talent, will do himself and my children a great disservice if he encourages them to believe is black hero, Mexican-Irish Quinn has never been known to duck con- troversy, and he insists that he is going ahead witli the Cliris- tophe film biography. "This controversy has split blacks down the he re- marked. "The trouble has come From pockets of isolated groups who arc against the idea. "There is also a split between jlack actors ot New York, who are against my playing Chris- :ophe, and the black actore of Hollywood, who are for it. I think the ones in Hollywood are more professional. They see lhat this is a professional ques- tion, not a racial one." Quinn repeated his argument that he has not objected to non- Latins playing Latin heroes: Wallace Beery as Pancho Villa, Marlon Brando as Zapala, Peter O'Toole as Don Quixote. "I myself have played Greeks, Italians, Eskimos. he said. "Why should I be excluded from play- ing a black? Racism is not in my lexicon. I will be playing a human being, not a black man.' that only a white- man capable of portraying a Bottomless show said immoral EDMONTON (CP) A city detective, told district court a performance in February by a bottomless dancer at an Edmon- ton night club was "the lowest form morality for a fe- male."
