Claude Rains is one of my favorite actors. He plays the complete slimeball so well, as exemplified by Reynault in Casablanca. I've seen him in only four different movies, but he is excellent in each. Oddly, in those movies, he plays a Frenchman, a German, an American, and an Englishman. Only the Englishman isn't a slimeball. Coincidence? Hmmm...

Since posting below, I remembered another great, great movie ending -- The Bridge on the River Kwai. It's a long movie, but it's absolutely worth the payoff at the end. I still think Mr. Arkadin has a better ending, though. And my wife thinks I'm nuts for liking that movie, but oh well.
