Great oldie, even if it is hard to read the credits.
9 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This film has obviously been overlooked through the years, it looks poorly cared for, yet it is still a very good movie, kind of like an ancestor to spy films. Problem is, you don't know who's doing any of the acting because the opening credits are printed small, and the film is so old that the screen has those film scratches and dots, making them even harder to read. Try to find this one, though, especially if you like intrigue films.
