Frank Grimes

1. – Graham Faulkner, Fratello sole, sorella luna/Brother Sun, Sister Moon, Italy, 1972. “A lovely actor, extraordinary presence in the theatre,” was Italian stage- screen director Franco Zeffirelli’s view of Grimes, the Irishman chosen for St   Francis after Al Pacino balked.   “But it was one of those things.   If, at the moment of marriage,   you   decide   she’s   not the right girl,   then you call   it off.” Faulkner, who auditioned for a spare monk, was “virgin wax that can be moulded.”   Zeffirelli’s first screen flop;   neither actor has been really heard of since.
