1940s Hollywood actor dies in Austria
Fox News - over 4 years
Turhan Bey, who starred in Hollywood escapist fantasies with the likes of Errol Flynn and Katherine Hepburn, has died at age 90. His death in Vienna was announced Tuesday by Marita Ruiter, a close acquaintance who has exhibited his photos in her Luxembourg gallery. She told the Austria Press Agency that Bey died on Sept. 30 after a long struggle with Parkinson's disease and was cremated on Monday. Born Gilbert Selahettin Schultavey as the son of a Turkish diplomat, Bey assumed his stage name shortly after emigrating to the U.S in 1938 with his Jewish Czech mother to escape the Nazis and being discovered by talent scouts from Warner Bros Studios. He moved back home to Vienna after the popularity of the Hollywood adventure genre faded and became a photographer.
