Robert Ryan in THE ICEMAN COMETH

Here is a scene from the 1973 film version of Eugene O'Neill's THE ICEMAN COMETH, directed by the late John Frankenheimer (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, SEVEN DAYS IN MAY).

The film stars Lee Marvin as Hickey, Jeff Bridges as Don Parritt, Fredric March as Harry Hope and Robert Ryan, in his final screen performance, as Larry Slade.

Knowing he was going to die of cancer soon, Ryan agreed to play the part of Larry Slade, a character who believes his death is imminent.

Ryan died before the film was released.
