3. Yep, Laurence Harvey
He was in a few other A-pictures in the Sixties (Butterfield 8, John Wayne's The Alamo) but he never had a part like that again. It's heartbreaking to watch him play Shaw's realization that, one way or antother, he'd been a pawn to fascist interests his entire life.

Then, of course, it's also the times; the quiet parallelism between the Chinese "controllers" and the American ones is so stinging and vicious. It's amazing by today's standards that anyone could put the boot into the right that publically. I have a similar reaction to Seven Days in May, which, the last time I saw it, had turned from a dark, paranoid conspiracy thriller into a heartwarming fantasy... : )
