superb drama about alger hiss, 30 April 2000
Author: gary overman (garyoverman@webtv.net) from derby, ks usa

Even though I disagreed with the central theme of this program--that is, the innocence of Alger Hiss--I found it to be a very enjoyable historical presentation.

The cast was superb. Edward Herrmann was excellent, as was the late John Harkins. Peter Riegert gave one of his best performances ever as Richard Nixon.

The main problem--in fact, the only problem--was the very shaky assumption that Hiss (played by Herrmann) was framed by Whittaker Chambers (Harkins).

This was one of very few efforts put this story on film, and even if it must be taken with a grain of salt, is still very much worth watching.
