    Laurence Harvey (1928-1973)
    Born Larushka Mischa Skikne in Lithuania, Laurence Harvey became one of the most talented and stylish young actors of the 1960s. His performance as the ruthless social climber Joe Lampton in Room at the Top - a performance that heralded the winds of change in British cinema acting and earned him a Best Actor Acadamy Award nomination - made him an international star, and a legend among the Hollywood greats.
