Storyline

Dzerzhinsky tries to make Sidney realize that his situation is hopeless and it is useless to resist interrogation. Characteristically Reilly does resist but is ultimately broken. A paranoid Stalin wants Sidney and everyone involved with 'The Trust' executed, but Dzerzhinsky resists. Meanwhile Cummings works for Reilly's release. Written by duke1029@aol.com

Trivia

Felix Dzerzhinsky died July 20, 1926 from heart failure after delivering a two hour speech deriding Trotsky and other dissidents. Stalin eulogized Dzerzhinsky as "...a devout knight of the proletariat." See more »

Goofs

Reilly sings "When the REd, Red, Robin Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin Along" in November 1925, but the song was not written until 1926. See more »

Quotes

Dzerzhinsky: As far as the world is concerned, you're dead. I emphasize this because I don't want you to hold out any hope that you're going to get out of here alive, and I want to spare you any unnecessary suffering that prolonged resistance to interrogation will bring.
Sidney Reilly: I appreciate your concern. Beating someone to death can be counterproductive.
Trilisser: Only the unskilled allow that to happen. You will not be so fortunate.
