Sir William Stephenson was pleased that David Niven was cast to play him in this film/mini-series. Niven was actually one of the wartime secret agents in the "Intrepid" spy-ring organization. Stephenson once said of Niven: "He's one person who knows what real war means. Churchill [i.e. Winston Churchill] told me personally that, although David had left Britain by then and gone to Hollywood to be in movies, 'David is a fine young man'. Despite the fact that he was doing a job in Hollywood, Niven came back to England to serve in the war, and I regarded him highly for that." See more »
