Greek Zorba with Alexis Zorbas - the Greek Dabkeh

Following on from my Zorba quote, here is that famous song from the film. Anthony Quinn is one of my favourite actors and his role as Omar Mukhtar in particular was inspiring. In fact I feel like watching that film again. Apparently his wife at the time complained that he was "in the role" of Mukhtar for months after finishing that film. For any of you who know me, this will be me dancing in the streets when I finish my law examinations next month. Just a happy man dancing the sirtaki to colour up what had been a grey life. From there where will I go? I don't know, I will be free for the first time in almost seven years, and the world will be my oyster.

I love this scene. Thank you for posting. I will have to go rent the movie because I haven't seen it in a long time.
