The murder of a Soviet defector forces his old handler, British spymaster George Smiley, out of retirement. His investigation leads to an old nemesis, the Soviet spymaster known only as Karla. This will be their final dance.
Bernard Samson is an aging British spy, who was once at the top of his game. He led his own spy team in East Germany from Berlin. Everything changed when he lost a team member and he's been blaming himself for it ever since. He now works behind the desk with a team of young highly educated spies, who've never seen a day of action. When evidence of a Russian mole within their ranks appear, he's asked once again to return to Berlin and use his experience and old contacts to help catch the traitor.
this i well remember. it was later . some years later that it has become a cult favorite. Deighton may not have like it( the movie) but i felt it was one of the great adaptation
a classic. a great movie that parallels the book . am willing also along with many others, i see, willing to paid for it. It will require Granda TV to release it in DVD or some enterprising person. the suspense builds and leaves many questions. Much better than the shoot em up mindless prater that comes out now. A number of fans are waiting for the go - ahead to buy a DVD. it will be a instant best seller. It is better than Soldier, Sailer...etc..
i have obtained the DVD of it .now available. the sound is excellent , better than the original. video is acceptable. three years later . i actually pulled out the DVD last night and started watching it again. strange as i have gotten use to high def and this is plain DVD. the sound is terrific and the nuance is far superior to anything on the market.
i am taking bids and if anyone is near Baltimore or Washington you are welcome to preview for the quality i stated. email me with bids . obviously no copies of this can be made as i suspect that is against the law.
