Question
Who portrayed Audrey Hepburn's uncle in the 1958 film Green Mansions?

Answer
Hi Paul,  Thanks for you question.
 
The character of "Nuflo", Audrey's grandfather, was played by the versatile actor, Lee J. Cobb, (hardly a "native type".)

And, incidentally, the native Chief, "Runi" was played by Sessue Hayakawa, and his son,"Kua-Ko" by
Henry Silva.

Too bad the film was a colossal flop,..depending mainly on the popularity of Hepurn and Perkins.

Sincerely,
Jim K.
