|Trivia||Russian soldiers on the east side of the Berlin wall purposely disrupted filming by using mirrors to reflect sunlight into the film cameras. The scene where Harry Palmer walks to Checkpoint Charlie for the first time, had to be filmed from a long distance, for that reason. See more »|
|Goofs||During the funeral there is a cut to the taxi-driver who now appears to be driving from the right hand seat of a car previously established as left hand drive. This shows the film was reversed during processing so as to match the direction of flow of surrounding shots. See more »|

I wish to defect, but there are conditions.
Harry Palmer: What do you want?
Colonel Stok: I want colonel's pay for life.
Harry Palmer: Don't we all.
Colonel Stok: A house in the country.
Harry Palmer: Oh, how many bedrooms?
Colonel Stok: Bedrooms do not matter. But I must have a big garden. I am a peasant at heart, and I want to grow roses in my old age.
Harry Palmer: In England, roses are out - weeds are in. Is that all?
Colonel Stok: That is all. I want comfort and security.
Harry Palmer: You've got all that in Russia now.
Colonel Stok: Aah, in Russia there is no place for an old Bolshevik. In my job I have made too many enemies.
Harry Palmer: Well, what about your family?
Colonel Stok: My wife died in a German air raid in 1941; my only son hasn't written to me in three years. What would you do in my position?
Harry Palmer: I'd stop telling lies, for a start. You have no son, and your wife is in Kiev with your daughter Katya. I know everything about you, Colonel Stok... from the size of your refrigerator to the cubic capacity of your mistress.
