I used to love Alister MacLean; read all of his books back in third or fourth grade, immediately after exhausting my TinTin collection. However, I have never seen any of the films - are they any good?
Reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes, who had experience both as a movie producer and a defense contractor for the United States, is said to have watched a private print of Ice Station Zebra 150 times on a continuous loop in his private hotel suite during the years prior to his death. In his 2013 autobiography My Way, singer Paul Anka writes that Hughes kept a permanent penthouse at the Desert Inn hotel in Las Vegas and owned a local TV station. "We knew when Hughes was in town," Anka wrote. "You'd get back to your room, turn on the TV at 2 a.m. and the movie 'Ice Station Zebra' would be playing. At 5 a.m., it would start all over again. It was on almost every night. Hughes loved that movie."
I love Patrick McGoohan's outbursts.

"Actually, I want it in a money order, and make it out to Ice Station Zebra Associates. That's my loan out. It's totally legit, it's done just for tax purposes."
