Movie Info

Director Anthony Mann's final film (Mann died during the filming, and the production was completed by the film's star, Laurence Harvey) is a kitchen-sink espionage drama with Harvey as Eberlin, a Russian spy and double-agent, homesick and pining for the Russian steppes. It is in this risky mood that Eberlin falls in love with the emaciated Caroline (Mia Farrow). Complications arise when he is directed to kill a Russian spy -- but the Russian spy happens to be himself. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Solid cold war story with Harvey more engaged than usual in the lead.

I think I am becoming a fan of British spy thrillers. This one, from 1968, features Laurence Harvey as a double agent sent to Berlin by the Secret Service to kill a top Russian assassin. Who knows what, and to whom will loyalty be given? Anthony Mann's tight direction kept the plot thick, Peter Cook kept me laughing, and Lionel Stander made for a charming Russian agent! Highly recommended!
