Laurence Harvey's brief appearance in this film was entirely edited out of it (and his name removed from the credits) when the film was first shown on British television in 1960. These omissions have never been restored. See more »
When Panitov is first bought a vodka by Sir Norman, he downs it in one. The shot changes and the Russian's arm does not move - but on the soundtrack we hear the glass bang down on the bar. See more »
A fun little adventure with Alastair Sim on form as usual (always watch Sim closely to get the best from his performances). Margaret Rutherford is her usual dippy, wonderful self and a host of other fifties household British names pop up (including Christopher Lee), in this easy to watch little adventure.
Fifty plus years on, it doesn't really matter what the political motivations of the film were, it's an entertaining little story with a beginning, middle and an end.
There's a lot of dross been made since 1953 and this film by no means takes a back seat. Sit back and enjoy.
