  • Question: Johnny, keeping in mind today’s theme, what is the only movie in which an actual eclipse of the sun is filmed as it was happening? - and while you are thinking...
 
  • Answer: The 1961 movie Barabbas which starred Anthony Quinn in the role, had the director Richard Fleischer film an actual occurring solar eclipse which he edited into the crucifixion scene at the beginning of the film. By the way, of all the movies in which Anthony Quinn appeared, Barabbas was his personal favourite.
