Joe Dante leads us through Cold War melodrama "The Prize" (1963), starring Paul Newman, Edward G. Robinson and Elke Sommer. Adapted by Ernest Lehman from the Irving Wallace potboiler set during the Nobel Prize ceremonies in Stockholm, Lehman borrows liberally from his own Hitchcock classic "North by Northwest," which also stars Leo G. Carroll. Among a talented comedic cast, future Bond girl Britt Ekland can be seen in her first Hollywood movie in a bit part as a nudist, no less--"A Shot in the Dark" came the following year.
