Trivia

The background story is loosely based on the real British American Intelligence operation "Gold" in the 1950s where a tunnel was dug under East Berlin and the Soviet telephone lines were intercepted. See more »

Goofs

About two-thirds into the film, an unconscious man is discovered lying fully clothed on a bed. The first shot of the man shows only his left hand, palm down, near the left side of the bed. This implies that he is lying on his back. But moments later, in a wider shot, the man is shown lying face down. See more »

Isn't there a similar movie made 50 years earlier?
19 March 2001 | by kwhummelSee all my reviews

I like watching this film every time they repeat it on TV, because I can't stop counting the dozens of references to "Casablanca".

My favourite is without doubt the final - guess what? - airport scene, where Isabella Rossellini (Elsa, err, Ingrid Bergman's daughter!) gets on board the propeller-engined plane, this time (surprise, surprise!) with the aging American and leaving behind the boring spy-guy, who is (dramatic change of scriptbook) not Czech, but British.
