Forgotten classic
1 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When I saw this in the early seventies on TV ( in black and white), I was very impressed. First the "hero" is a Russian spy and is played by Lorne Greene. From the beginning we are on his side even though we sort of know he is doomed. He is retired and does not want another assignment but is pressured into this undercover , double agent task. What he does not not know is how bizarre it will turn out and that along the way he will find a late in life romance with an Englishwoman double agent. The mystery is great, the supporting cast from Patrick Newell to James Donald to Anthony Quayle to Hrry Andrews is first rate. I found the film entertaining , refreshing and even quite poignant. The romance between Rachel Roberts and Lorne Greene brought a tear to my eye.
