Storyline

A young woman finds herself engulfed in Cold War intrigue when her father, a Nobel Prize-winning author, vanishes while travelling near the Russian border. Entrusted by her father with an unfinished book he was working on before his trip, the young woman becomes engaged in a power struggle over the material with her estranged stepmother. Suspiciously befriended by a journalist in the midst of the crisis, the young woman ultimately learns that no one is to be trusted - as her father's work is of interest to the intelligence departments of several countries. Written by from the UCLA Film and Television Archive

Trivia

One of Jack Stewart's first credits as a television assistant art director was working with famous EMMY winning production designer James (Jim) Trittipo (b.1929-d.1971, age 43) on the Hallmark Hall of Fame George Schaefer directed TV dramatic Special "The File On Devlin" starring Judith Anderson. "The File on Devlin" was video-taped in color on Stage 2 and 4 at the Burbank NBC Television studio during the late 1969 summer. CBS Television City art department manager Robert Tyler Lee had convinced his friend Jim Trittipo to use Jack as his assistant scenic designer and set decorator. NBC's Burbank facility did not have an IATSE contract requiring a set decorator on a production's television show staff. See more »
