As Rudolf Hess, 77-year-old Laurence Olivier was in poor health during filming and required a nurse to accompany him during production. Olivier was also beginning to suffer with memory problems and labored for hours on his one long speech, despite having trouble with the dialogue. See more »
If you're expecting lots of action and gunplay, don't bother; you'll surely be disappointed. The movie focuses more on intrigue and endless spy games. The complicated story maintains interest throughout, but ultimately it's all for naught. Still, there is a sly performance by Edward Fox to be enjoyed (if you can stand his deliberately curious accent!) (**)
