In West Berlin at the height of the Cold War, British spy Eberlin (Laurence Harvey) is tasked with the dangerous assignment of finding and assassinating the treacherous KGB agent Krasnevin, who has killed many undercover British agents. He's given a new partner, Gatiss (Tom Courtenay), to help eliminate the deadly Russian. What neither his bosses nor his partner know, however, is that Eberlin himself is Krasnevin, a double agent whose secret identity his Moscow bosses don't want compromised. The British and Soviet intelligence services attempt to out-fox one another using the homesick double-agent Krasnevin as pawn in this complex spy-game.

Starring:   Laurence Harvey, Tom Courtenay, Mia Farrow

Viewer Review:  "This is another excellent performance by Laurence Harvey. The spy stuff and his relationship with the character played by Tom Courtenay are interesting. Also interesting is the young Peter Cook in a "non-comical" role ( well sort of). Harvey brings such an air of sadness and despair to this kind of role.  In this movie, the life and emotion is drained out of him to create the perfect double agent. This kind of film was popular in the 60's as an antidote to James Bond and his clones. The great Anthony Mann started this film and was replaced by Harvey when Mann died. Definitely worth a look."
