Reportedly, the marriage of actress Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra was in decline during the production of this movie. Apparently, when the film went over schedule, Sinatra phoned everyday to order Farrow to come home. See more »
I'm an existentialist.
Uh - you're a what?
I'm an ext - isn't that the right word?
I would say "exhibitionist" is more to the point.
What's an existentialist, then?
Well, it's slightly more complex than romping around naked.

It was somewhat of a feature of the late 1960s to make bleak and world weary spy movies. This film is in this mould. I saw the film upon it's release and quite enjoyed it, albeit it is slow and a little dull. Still, I think that it is an interesting piece of film making and enjoyed the performances of Laurence Harvey and Tom Courtenay who play British agents who do not like each other. (Harvey is in fact a double agent). There are some good locations shots of 1960's London (mainly bleak) and Berlin (not so bleak). Harvey trudges around both capitals after been given an assignment to kill a Russian Spy - who is in fact himself. Mia Farrow is a trendy young thing (tho' a bit on the thin side)and adds love interest. However, as she keeps turning up wherever Harvey goes, is she as innocent as she appears? A young Peter Cook also stars as a rather irritating junior British agent. John Bird and Lionel Stander add a little humour into an otherwise humourless film. Definitely worth a look.
