Trivia

Klaus Fuchs claims, in this episode, that his wife had committed suicide before the start of the war as a political protest against the Nazis. In point of fact, Fuchs did not marry until 1959. His mother committed suicide, but in 1930, before the Nazis came to power. See more »

Goofs

General Walter Bedell Smith is harassing James Jesus Angleton at CIA headquarters about information that Angleton has about the Cambridge Spies. The aggressive and impatient Smith blurts out, "Come on Angleton! Where's the beef!" This phrase actually originated in a television commercial for Wendy's chain of hamburger restaurants in 1984, more than 30 years after the year in which the scene is set. See more »
