Trivia

This film's director Jeannot Szwarc once said of this movie around the time it was first released: "I'd been looking for something like this . . . something like The Third Man (1949). I'm a classicist, I guess. I always like to do classical genres of film. And there hasn't been a film for years like The Third Man (1949) which, if anything, is the style of this one . . . with something of Z (1969) in it, too." See more »

Scrambled Mystery
10 July 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

In Paris, American-born East German defector and radio talk show host Martin Sheen (as Alexander "Alex" Holbeck) is recruited by the CIA to go to Berlin and steal "The Enigma Machine" which scrambles secret Cold War spy messages. This will help the US thwart the USSR's planned assassination of five defectors to the west. In East Berlin, Mr. Sheen fools the KGB with various disguises. He sprays silver in his hair, but it looks the same. Sheen seeks out former girlfriend Brigitte Fossey (as Karen Reinhardt) and she sets out to seduce their "unsophisticated but shrewd" enemy, Moscow swimmer Sam Neill (as Dimitri Vasilikov). Sheen sometimes appears bored with this confusing adaptation of a good idea. His co-stars make their final confrontation scene work well.
