Louis Calhern's scenes were shot in Hollywood and added to the film after the main work on the film had been done in England. The British actors in the film had had no idea he was going to be in the film, as his character was not included in the script they had worked from. See more »

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.
