Storyline

During the Cold War, Michael Newman is vacationing in Venice. There, he notices a woman who's been following him for seven days. When he finally talks to her, she confesses that she is the wife of Paul Trégard, a French intelligence officer who has saved Michael Newman father's life 20 years earlier. Now, Paul Trégard is a fugitive and accused of treason by the French authorities but his wife doesn't believe these false accusations. She begs Michael Newman to help prove her husband's innocence. Since Paul Trégard saved Michael father's life, Michael feels indebted to him. She accepts the offer to investigate the whole affair. Paul Trégard is rumored to be hiding somewhere in Venice. But first, Michael talks to Paul Trégard's superiors in Paris, especially with Colonel Vallier, the chief of French intelligence. Vallier is convinced that Trégard is a traitor. Nevertheless, Michael Newman returns to Venice where he begins his investigation. He must locate Trégard, who is in hiding. In ... Written by nufs68

User Reviews

Tasteless and totally uninspired!
22 April 2020 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

André Versini, the director of this film, made only 3 films in total. I have not seen the other two, but they are probably as good as this one, which is boring, anost, having nothing interesting. Erroll Flynn's son, Sean Flynn, who died young, at only 30, as an actor, did not excel in any film. When I was little and naive, I liked him in "The Son of Captain Blood" (1962). Here, in this "Mission to Venice", I did not like it at all.
