I haven't seen this movie in 30+ years but many of it's ideas were so unique that I still remember them clearly. The "hero" is a government agent with no memories of his past and no emotions. As a reward for services rendered, he is informed of his past: that he was an American traitor who defected to the Chinese and was badly injured in an accident and returned to American custody. All his memories were destroyed due to brain damage, which also accounts for his inability to feel emotion. This, of course, makes him a perfect agent. Leslie Nielson does a marvelous job as his handler, whose cynical and callous actions show the Hero that even though he's deficient in some areas, he's superior in others. Much better and more original than many "spy" movies and worth watching.
