He was my favorite of all the actors in Hollywood wish I could have met him. I sent him pictures and he graciously signed them for me. He was a true star. I miss those days movies were clean no cursing no nudity and they were so enjoyable.
He was a very giving person.

I grew up on Cedros Street in Solana Beach. Mr. Mature owned property on that street but didn't live there. My neighbor was a bookie for the horse races in Del Mar. Mr. Mature spent a lot of time there during race season. He used to buy lemonade from me and always overpaid. He would send my brother to buy cigarettes and give him way too much money for the errand. We used to take him Concord grapes by the box full from my grandpa's acreage. He loved them! One summer night he brought a projector and one of his movies for us to watch outside. For Christmas one year I got a large autographed picture of him in the movie Demetrius and the Gladiator. I still have that picture. He was a very giving man and I have fond memories of him.
Just say Victor Mature in a movie and couldn't get over how much he resembles Chris Noth. Couldn't find any relationship but very interesting!
A Man of Character
- Patrick Miano
Actors and other entertainers are always whining about "intrusions on their privacy." They only want people to see them at their best. Victor Mature was realistic and accepted the good with the bad. One of his lesser known but still relevant quotes is, "If you're so concerned about f***ing privacy, don't become a f***ing actor."
My memory of Victor Mature
- John Vaughn
I can only say that I have seen Victor Mature in "The Robe".....but his image, strength of character and contribution to the power of this movie will forever be burned into my mind and soul. I never fail to feel the emotion he portrays as the tormented but honorable greek slave and his conversion to Christianity. A powerful performance in a magnicent film. John Vaughn
Photo of Mature and Lamarr
I've always been a fan of Victor Mature since I can remember. I was in Bali, Indonesia twenty years ago and found a movie release of Samson & Delilah in French, framed in a wonderful frame. Since items are cheap over there, I'd thought I'd get this photo for about twenty dollars. I wound up paying two hundred dollars and then having it packed for the airplane back. It's a wonderful photo measuring about 20" x 28". He's part of the American golden era of film....
DESERVES MORE CREDIT FOR ACTING ABILITY
My favorite movie is "The Las Vegas Story". Mr. Mature could act. Sure wish he appeared in more movies that showcased his range.

THIS MOVIE WAS NOT LISTED. ANN SHERIDAN WAS HIS CO-STAR. VERY FUNNY MOVIE. I'M FROM BOSTON AND THERE WAS A COMEDIAN FROM BOSTON IN IT.
TCM, My mother, Loretta Mature, is Victor's widow. They did not divorce. Please update your bio. Thank you so much for saying nice things about my father on my mothers BD. It was so nice to hear his voice and see him again. My mother was very happy and wanted me to thank you. Will you be playing any more of his movies soon. 7 days leave shows his true personality. He was a very loviing man. Thank you again, Autumn
Victor Mature's last wife was my mother Loretta Mature who had his only child Victoria Mature. Victoria is in the new film "As you like it" You should check out the reviews of the three movie tailers on utube. I'm very proud of my little sister. http://youtube.com/watch?v=ohgYxNWjBrA Trailer 1 http://youtube.com/watch?v=ABp0QPCT5sg Trailer 2 Autumn

An Actor With A Great Sense of Humor
- Bill Giesin
I come from the same hometown as Victor Mature (Louisville, Kentucky). Vic had a great sense of humor. During the shooting of Cecil B. DeMille's Samson and Delilah, Vic refused to wrestle with "Jackie the Lion" during a fight scene. DeMille explained that the lion didn't have any teeth.... and Vic told him "I don't plan to be gummed to death either". Vic talked fellow actor and former Kentucky Military Instutute school mate, Jim Bachus, into going with him to a nearby bar during the shooting of Androcoles and the Lion. Both men startled the bartender as they were still dressed in their Roman soldier uniforms. Vic casually responded, "What's the matter...don't you serve men in uniform!"

Victor Mature - Always Remembered!
- Patty K.
I will always remember Victor Mature - not only for his handsome looks but for his acting as well. He really was a good actor but, because of his good looks, a lot of people didn't think so. He was definitely a handsome man with much talent. I miss him in the movies; always enjoyed his performances. Sincerely, Patty K. :-)
