The List of Adrian Messenger

A brilliant ensemble murder mystery directed by John Huston, and headed by George C Scott as British Colonel Gethryn, asked by his good friend, Adrian Messenger, to find the eleven men named on a list. But when Adrian is killed soon after, Gethryn discovers that all the men were held captive in a Burmese POW camp during WWII, and are being killed one by one. As the killer works his way through the list, helped by being a 'master of a thousand disguises', Gethryn is in a race against time. As an added bonus, a number of the smaller parts were played by Hollywood stars in disguise, including Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum and Frank Sinatra.
