The List of Adrian Messenger (1963) is a black and white thriller about a retired British colonel (George C. Scott) investigating a series of apparently unrelated deaths. The film is based on the 1961 novel of the same title by Philip MacDonald. A number of prominent Hollywood actors are advertised to appear in the film heavily disguised in make-up: Tony Curtis, Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Frank Sinatra, and Robert Mitchum. Their identities are revealed to the audience at the very end of the film, when each star removes their disguise and make-up.
