The meaning and relevance of this film's title "Eye of the Needle" is that it is a reference to the eye of the stiletto blade that Nazi spy Henry Faber uses to kill his enemies. The needle of the title is in this case a metaphor for the stiletto blade. The title represents a slight reworking of the wording of and an allusion to, the aphorism "Eye of a Needle". The eye of a needle is the top part of a needle (opposite to the prick or point) which has an oval loop made for thread, the circular oval shape being a metaphor for an "eye." See more
