Rex Ingram

Highest Rated: 100% The Thief of Bagdad (1940)

Lowest Rated: 22% Hurry Sundown (1967)

Birthday: Oct 20, 1895

Birthplace: Cairo, Illinois, USA

Accomplished stage performer whose screen appearances, owing to prevailing racial attitudes in Hollywood, were intermittent. Ingram was outstanding in Vincente Minnelli's all-black production, "Cabin in the Sky" (1943) and he was also delightful as the genie in "The Thief of Bagdad" (1940). Not to be confused with silent screen director Rex Ingram.

QUOTES FROM Rex Ingram CHARACTERS

Abu says: How can you be so ungrateful?

Djinni says: Grateful? Slaves are not grateful. Not for their freedom!

Djinni says: You're a clever little man little master of the universe, but mortals are weak and frail. If their stomach speaks, they forget their brain. If their brain speaks, they forget their heart. And if their heart speaks [laughter] ... they forget everything.
