"I believe a man writes the story of his life not in order to remember, but in order to forget. I was never the same man from one day to the next, which is perhaps why I am desperate to know the man I have become, finally. This is it. I have lived in a flurry of images, but I will go out in a freeze frame."
— Anthony Quinn

Anthony Quinn's One Man Tango is about a day of reckoning unlike any other in the rich life of the legendary actor, a day that leaves him to confront a lifetime of memories, wrestle the lingering demons of his youth, and defy the passage of his time on this earth.

In One Man Tango Anthony Quinn revisits his triumphs and tragedies with wit and pathos, offering readers a disarmingly candid self-portrait of one of the most powerful, multifaceted, and expressive actors of all time.
