Home at last! Beautiful isn't it? And this is my charming brother Chris.
Hey, Chris, put the bucket down and say hello to something you've never seen in your entire stupid life - a lady! Well, say something, Chris!
Great talker, this brother of mine - he always was!
I thought maybe you'd come back to do a job of work for a change.
Work, Chris? What is that?

As someone working on creative and interesting plotting, I saw this intrigue movie as outstanding. I had to stay and watch just to find out who the 2-way spy was: was it Turner, was it Mature, oh my could it be Clark? I had no problem with the directing; I thought the last scene with Turner looking at Gable, searching his face for signs of hate or love was good.
I had a problem with the one word title, although it was relevant; it did seem to point to one character as the good guy, so it was misleading if that was the intent. (I don't think this is a spoiler, let me know).
I was glad the movie was in color; usually I prefer black and white on the older movies, however, the scenery et all was great in color.
