Storyline

Edit
Plot Summary

In 1960, the Israeli Secret Service learns that former SS-Lietuenant Colonel Adolf Eichmann, who was one of the key figures in the Jewish holocaust of World War II, is living under the assumed name Ricardo Clement in Argentina. The film thus explores the Isreali effort to capture Eichmann, as seen from the perspective of the leading agent of the project, as well as giving focus to Eichmann's own explanations as to the crimes he commited.

Trivia Jeffrey Tambor, who is 6'1" tall, portrays Israeli Mossad chief Isser Harel, who, in real-life, was only five feet tall. See more »
Goofs In real life, the aircraft used to take Eichmann to Israel was a Bristol Britannia. However, these turboprop machines had very short working lives due to the popularity of jets and thus none were available for the film. As a result a Boeing 707 jetliner was used instead in the film. Worse, it appears to be a JT3D-engined Intercontinental (a -320B or -320C) even though the -320B did not first fly until 1962 and the -320C was not introduced until 1964. See more »
