Storyline

Spy vs. spy. Three Yale grads, class of 1954, join their respective countries' secret service. We follow them for 40 years - through the outing of a British spy, the Hungarian revolution, the Bay of Pigs, the scent of moles, and the collapse of the USSR. Fictional characters - Yalies Jack McCauliffe, Leo Kritzky, and Yevgeny Tsipin and Jack's boss Harvey Torriti - rub shoulders with real figures like Kim Philby and James Angleton to tell stories of romance, intrigue, double-crosses, false leads, suicide, execution, and exile - in the name of ideology, patriotism, paranoia, perfidy, and one-upsmanship. Can the CIA claim any credit in the West's Cold War triumph? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The footage of the entrance gate of C.I.A. Headquarters in 1975 was re-used from the film Spy Game (2001), which Tony Scott, of Scott Free Productions, directed. Perhaps as further interest, that footage is not of the C.I.A., but an abandoned telephone company entrance gate. See more »

superb movie
11 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

As a lover of history and good cinema, this movie was most enjoyable. I am not knowledgeable enough to speak about the historical accuracy of the entire work; however, I know that it is based on historical fact.

I'm totally fascinated by the history of the CIA; especially in the time period covered in this film. I greatly admire the vast majority of the members of the CIA with whom I have read books, articles, and seen movies portraying their life.

As far as the enjoyment level of this as a film, I am very pleased with the balance of history, information, substance, action, military footage, personal life info, etc. WELL DONE! I would love to see this series added to as time goes on (though I realize that is not likely). I'm not familiar with the original book nor the author; however, I will immediately investigate both.
