Storyline

Burgess, Blunt, Philby and Maclean, still ardent communists and working for the KGB, must follow instructions and cover their political leanings. They now have to convince the powers that be that they have outgrown their juvenile leanings towards socialism and become members of the British establishment to become moles on the inside. Philby is sent to Spain to report on the civil war, made to deny any German involvement, and Blunt gains the confidence of the British royal family.

Goofs

The Catholic priest who aids the mother during the bombing of Guernica is wearing his biretta (small black cap) incorrectly. The biretta has three peaks, with the "peak-less" corner worn on the left side of the head. The priest in the film wears his biretta with the non-vertical peak side to the rear. See more »

Quotes

Kim Philby: Stalin is buying time. Stalin cares about one thing: Russia. What anyone else might feel about the principle of signing a treaty with Hitler is irrelevant.
Guy Burgess: Irrelevant! It's like the pope making friends with the devil because he knows the devil's got bigger bollocks.
