Whereas Burton had to learn to rein it in, Harvey's already tightly controlled persona made the social-climbing Lampton resonate.
Harvey fits the skin of the character much better than does Burton. Despite not being an authentic specimen, the success of his performance as a working-class man-on-the-make proved to be the vanguard of a new generation of screen characters that would be played by the real thing: Albert Finney , Tom Courtenay , Terence Stamp and Michael Caine , among others.
For his role as Joe, Harvey received his first and only Academy Award nomination. The virtue of the film is its emotional honesty about the manipulation of personal relationships for social gain in postwar Britain, a system that after a decade under the Conservatives had become self-satisfied and complacent.
In its portrayal of class warfare, the film offers the most intense critique of the British class system offered by any film from the British New Wave, including "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning," which never leaves the confines of the working-class strata its main character, Arthur Seaton, is stuck in and ultimately reconciled to.
That Joe chooses a woman other than the one he really loves in order to gain social mobility, engaging in emotional manipulation of other human beings, is a brutal indictment of the class structure of postwar Britain.
Joe, on his way to his wedding and his great chance, has lost his humanity. His failure is symbolic of Britain's failure as well. It is the haughtiness and narcissism of the actor Harvey qualities his screen persona engenders in film after film that elucidates Lampton's weakness.
A further irony of Harvey's effective, if ersatz, portrayal of working-class Joe is that it made him such a success - he soon went off to Hollywood to play opposite box-office titan Elizabeth Taylor in BUtterfield 8 , thus losing out on further opportunities to appear in the British New Wave he helped introduce.
As well as supporting Taylor in her Oscar-winning turn in "Butterfield 8" the two became close friends , a badly miscast Harvey also co-starred as Texas hero Col.
With the exception of the lead in the British Jungle Fighters - a war picture that was decidedly NOT New Wave - Harvey did not appear again in a major British film until , when he returned to the other side of the pond to reprise Joe in the "Room" sequel Life at the Top However, if he had never gone Hollywood, he might never have been cast in his other signature role: Raymond Shaw, the eponymous The Manchurian Candidate Once again, the match of actor and character was ideal, as Harvey's coldness and affect-free acting perfectly embodied the persona of the programmed assassin.
The film, and Harvey's performance in it, are classic. In this Hollywood interlude, Harvey also appeared in the screen adaptations of Tennessee Williams ' Summer and Smoke opposite the great Geraldine Page , Oscar-nominated for her role, and the artistically less successful Walk on the Wild Side , supported by the legendary Barbara Stanwyck , French beauty Capucine and a young Jane Fonda.
The critics were less kind to his acting in these outings, and, indeed, the rather elegant Harvey does seem miscast as Dove Linkhorn, the wandering Texan created by hardboiled Nelson Algren , reduced to working in an automotive garage by the exigencies of the Great Depression.
Critics were even less kind when Harvey tried to follow in Leslie Howard 's footsteps in the remake of Of Human Bondage Although he could not know it then, Harvey had reached the zenith of his career.
Honors for Harvey were few after this point. The result, The Outrage , in which Newman played a murderous Mexican bandit and Harvey his victim, was an unqualified flop that still boggles the mind of viewers unfortunate enough to stumble upon it, so outrageous is the idea of casting Newman as a Mexican killer a role originated by Rod Steiger on the Broadway stage.
Harvey, very often a wooden presence in his less inspired performances, was appropriately upstaged by the tree he remained tied to throughout most of the film.
Along with "Life at the Top," Harvey appeared in support of Oscar-winner Julie Christie in John Schlesinger's Darling , an allegedly "mod" look at the jaded and superficial existence of what was then termed the "jet set.
Christie was excellent - particularly as she metamorphosed from Dolly-bird to a more mature sort of hustler - and first-male lead Dirk Bogarde always proved an interesting actor, but it was Harvey who most clearly embodied the zeitgeist of the picture.
Once again, his coldness did him well as he limned the executive who manipulates and is manipulated by Christie's Diana character. Harvey had become at this point a kind of good-luck charm for actresses with whom he appeared.
Another irony of Harvey's career is that, despite ushering in the British New Wave and a cinema more independent of the meat-grinder ethos of the Hollywood and British studios catering to popular taste, he would have been better served in the s and s as a contract player at a major studio.
Like Michael Wilding who also became the third husband of Harvey's first wife, Margaret Leighton , another handsome man of limited gifts who nonetheless could be quite affecting in the right role, Harvey's career likely would have thrived under the studio system, with an interested boss to guide him.
Like Minniver Cheever, however, he was unfortunate to have been born after his time. As it was, the next and last decade of Harvey's screen life was a disappointment, with the actor relegated to less and less prestigious pictures and international co-productions that needed a "star" name.
In the s, Harvey became largely irrelevant as a player in the motion picture industry. His luck had run out. Filmography by Job Trailers and Videos.
