Patrick Allen and James Maxwell carefully hunt down a commie spy ring
21 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Traitors" is definitely a spy-noir, and a good one at that. Patrick Allen came to my attention in "The Long Haul" (1957). He's always adds punch to a movie, and here he's the lead government man who's trying to take down a commie spy ring. This, after all, is at the height of Cold War I. James Maxwell plays an American sidekick. The story is aided immensely by a large amount of location exteriors. It's basically a procedural, in which it's necessary to follow the lower level spies so that they lead to higher level spies until one gets a big enough fish to rope in the whole caboodle. Although there is not a lot of suspense, this is done in a taut way, with some interplay in the lulls, and a nice closing sequence in an indoor public swimming pool place. The director, Robert Tronson, went on to do "Ring of Treason" (1964), another strong one with Bernard Lee.
