Patrick McGoohan learned to play the drums for the film. See more »


When Patrick McGoohan's character is playing a drum solo about halfway through the film, the drum kit used is different in the medium shots and POV shots, suggesting that the latter were likely shot at a later time with a different drummer. See more »

Not as good as the first time I saw it
8 June 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw this film was when it came out in 1961. I didn't care then one iota that it was a modern day 'take' on Shakespeare's play: "Othello" What

grabbed me then was that it featured jazz musicians like Mingus, Brubeck, and Tubby Hayes, in a feature film. On a second viewing recently on late night T.V., I now believe the producers of this film should have left Shakespearian drama to Shakespearian actors. Though it was terrific to see and hear musicians like

Hayes and Brubeck (man! those pearly whites he flashes at every available

opportunity!), I think it was a shame that a man like Charles Mingus (a musical genius and bass player without peer), was not featured more often.
