Victor Mature Facts
Victor's father Marcello Gelindo Mature, a knife sharpener and cutler, was born in 1877 in the town of Pinzolo, in the Italian Tyrolean region of Trentino which was then under the rule of Austria-Hungary, and returned under Italian sovereignty in 1918 after WW I. His family emigrated to the US with his brothers in 1912, and settled in Louisville, Kentucky where he was born.

He attributed his success in Biblical spectacles to his ability to "make with the holy look."

Was approached for the role of Sylvester Stallone's father in Oscar (1991), which eventually went to Kirk Douglas.
