Movie Info

To the Nazis he was Codename: Alaric.To the British he was simply Garbo.To the world he was a mystery.But 30 years after the facts and fiction, the cloak of mystery that kept him hidden and tied to Alaric and Garbo finally started to unravel.Nigel West, noted English Spy novelist, started out on a journey to expose the truth about the man born Juan Pujol and uncovered a story so amazing that it could only be true. The man who the world thought to be dead and buried in Angola in 1949, a man that died a hero to both the British and the Nazis, looked pretty spry when discovered in South America 35 years after his burial. This is the story of Garbo. -- (C) Official Sitemore

Doc's incredible tale of WWII espionage would likely work better as a feature film.
