Frank Wilcox Quotes:

Alberta Marlow: [Talking about Japanese people in general] You are always so calm. You never show anything.
Capt. Higoto: We are told not to. It is our way of rife. We must not show too much sad-i-ness or too much joy. If you praise what we have, we say it is nus-sing. If you admire our sons, we must say thay are unworthy.


Sheriff Brand: Suppose I told you there were half a dozen warrants out for his arrest right now. One for killing a man out of Silver City, Colorado, eight years ago with a knife. Another for killing four Chiricahua Indians.
Alexander Kain: Eight years ago? Well, that's ridiculous. The boy couldn't have been more than twelve years old!
Sheriff Brand: You don't judge a rattlesnake by his age. He's a rattler whether he's got one rattle or a dozen.


Knut Osterholm: I'm a farmer. If I lose my farm there must be a reason for it. The sacrifice of one poor village - what will it accomplish?
Gerd Bjarnesen: What sacrifice? What are you giving up? Your life? Maybe they'll take that from you whether you fight or not? Your farm? It isn't yours anyway until you fight for it. Your peace? What peace is there when a body of troops can come in the middle of the night and arrest you as a hostage. To be shot, for something you never did or never even thought of. To live in constant fear. Have blackings at your windows. Talk in whispers. Have guards at your church doors."
Jensen - Shoemaker: Do you have any more objections?

Frank Wilcox Facts
In the final release print of 1951's Show Boat (1951), Wilcox, as a poker player, had no lines -- unusual for a familiar supporting actor who usually had a speaking part. But his role may have been a little more substantial in the rough cut, because the scenes of Gaylord Ravenal and Magnolia's "winning streak" in Chicago were trimmed some after it was decided that they slowed down the film.

Served on the Screen Actors Guild Board of Directors.

Honorary mayor of Granada Hills, California during the 1960s.
