1940, Linda Voss is a woman of Irish, Jewish-German parentage who loves the movies, especially films about war and spies. She gets a job at a New York law firm, after it's revealed she can speak German, fluently. As secretary and translator to Ed Leland, she begins to suspect that her boss is involved in espionage work.

In Ed Leland's (Michael Douglas') office, Linda (Melanie Griffith) explains how she comes to know something about spying, and refers to a movie in which a character's tongue is cut out and says, "Have you seen 'The Fighting 69th'." The "Fighting 69th" was O.S.S. Bill Donovan's regiment in World War I. See more »
In Ed's office, the translator pronounces "Schornstein" correctly with an "I" sound in the last syllable. Outside, Linda pronounces it incorrectly with an "E" sound. See more »
What a truly gripping film and storyline!! Melanie Griffith played her role as a spy beautifully, and Michael Douglas added his own special touch to the film.The late John Gielgud and Joely Richardson were also stars who made the film that little bit more eye catching!! In some parts it was emotional too, showing how Germany was like in the 1940's era. A very moving and successful film, which deserved every bit of its 10/10!!
