Pretty good but you really have to pay attention as you watch.
Doug McClure was a handsome actor who did a lot of TV and movies in the 1960s and 70s. Here, however, he's in a very unusual role--the sort you wouldn't expect for him. He's a very deeply planted Soviet spy--one of their very best and a guy who looks and acts very much like a native-born American. However, he and the KGB appear to have a bit of a falling out and they want him dead. Or, is this really just an elaborate ruse in order for the agent to pretend to defect?! What's REALLY going on here and is all of this just part of some very, very complicated ruse? Because of this, it's very important you watch the film closely so that you can figure it out yourself.
This is a reasonably well made for television movie. In addition to McClure, Darren McGavin and Richard Basehart star in this one--not a bad cast at all. Worth seeing but one that seemed to me could have been just a bit better...though I gotta be honest, it's hard to put this into words.
