WHEN THE COLD WAR HEATED UP
22 March 2020 | by larryandersonSee all my reviews

When the cold war heated up is what this movie is trying hard to accomplish. but fails to get started. Peter Van Eyck tries to keep the story going but changes side so often it is hard to keep track of. Made in 1962 it was seen as a pre-Bond movie. (even thought the James Bond books were published in 1954, so they weren't a secret). When you watch this you will notice many actors who later went on to play in the actual James Bond movies. Certainly entertaining but slow and somewhat predictable.
