Christopher Lawford as Capt William B Ecker in "Thirteen Days"  Little bit of funny trivia is that Lawford is a nephew of President John F Kennedy and former cousin-in-law of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Charlton Heston as General Charles Henry Gordon in "Khartoum"

Apparently when Heston went into the tailor shop in London that was making the uniform film to get fitted, he was astounded at how detailed and close to the original uniform it was. The proprietor then told him that the original Gordon was a client of theirs back in the day...and that they still had the original designs for this uniform in their archives!

That's pretty interesting about Heston's costume/uniform in Khartoum. For some reason I forgot all about 'The Mahdi" who captured Khartoum in 1885...

 

Laurence Olivier as Muhammad Ahmad, 'The Mahdi' in "Khartoum"

I got the actor's name wrong?! What number post was that Kevin? 

 

Edit: Same actor played both parts. I selected the wrong character picture!

   On a musical note, don't forget Clifton Webb as John Philip Sousa in Stars and Stripes Forever. And Ron Livingston as Richard Pimental in The Music Within.   Scott.
