Brian Keith Thompson - A variety of celebrities were snapped on the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of the action crime thriller 'Checkmate' which was held at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Los Angeles, California, United States - Thursday 11th December 2014
Robert Mitchum plays Harry Kilmer, a retired detective, called back into service by old World War II army pal George Tanner (Brian Keith), who asks for his help in rescuing his daughter, who is being held in Japan by the yakuza. Tanner knows Kilmer is owed a debt of honor by ex-yakuza member Tanaka Ken (Ken Takakura, the big Japanese star of all those '70s yakuza films) and convinces him to travel back to Japan to see if Ken will honor his obligation to Kilmer by infiltrating the yakuza gang holding his daughter and bringing her back home (significantly, the daughter is no more than a unconscious blip on the radar in The Yakuza).

Hayley Mills became America's sweetheart in this children's classic, which has Mills acting opposite herself in an impressive and seamless split-screen effect (considering the movie is 40 years old) -- though many scenes include Mills with a body double. She plays both Sharon and Susan, identical twins separated at birth by divorcing parents -- and oddly, they've never been told about one another's existence. Contrived, sure, but no more than the plot that follows -- the girls meet at summer camp and decide to switch places for a spell, and eventually aim to get their parents back together.
