Pleasence Crafty In 'Matchless'



Donald Pleasence is unpleasant again in Matchless, opening in Technicolor and wide screen ............ at the ............ Theatre. Co-starring Patrick O'Neal and Ira Furstenberg, the modern adventure drama is released thru United Artists, a Transamerica Company.

Pleasence, who reached a new high in low-down villains with his startling characterization of James Bond's arch rival, the Spectre chief in You Only Live Twice, plays the cunning and crafty adversary of Matchless, the hero of Matchless---and now you know how the picture gets its name. That's all you'll know before seeing it, however, as the plot is being guarded as carefully as the CIA's top secret file.

Acclaimed by critics and audiences alike for his moving and tender performances in The Great Escape, The Hallelujah Trail, The Greatest Story Ever Told, and The Caretaker, among the scores of films he has made, the British born actor has found that cinematic crime seems to pay much better for him. Audiences always seem to remember the bad-guy.
