  • movie Description
  • The Prize is a light-hearted mystery thriller involving crime, deception and Nobel Prize winners. Andrew Craig is a philandering, hard-drinking writer who unexpectedly wins the Nobel Prize for literature. Arriving in Stockholm, he meets a fellow laureate, Dr. Max Stratman, who is very friendly and very pro-American; but at a press conference later that week, Stratman largely ignores Craig, avoids the media, criticises the US savagely and exhibits an all-around change in character. Craig cannot convince anyone that the kindly doctor has been replaced by a doppelganger and that the real man has been kidnapped - so he investigates on his own.moreless

    Trivia (1)

    • This was a very loose adaptation of Irving Wallace's best-selling novel. As several critics noted, its plot bore a rather closer resemblance to that of Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 film North By Northwest - which had the same screenwriter, Ernest Lehman (and was the only screen original in Lehman's career).
