Enjoyed watching this film again - with Ann ap this time - came out the year I took up my first and only incumbency. Gregory Peck joined the film in July. Olivier had recently been ill and was taking as many well paying movie jobs as he could get in order to provide for his wife and children after his death. Peck agreed to portray Mengele only because he had wanted to work with Olivier. Mum was a big GP fan.
Jim Knipfel writes - The Boys From Brazil is Weirder Than Any Horror Movie. What has Gregory Peck, Laurence Olivier, James Mason, and 92 Hitlers? Give up? The Boys From Brazil! Yes, weird, but still entertaining.
