Description Technical Specs
Michael Anderson directs this thrilling adaptation of Elleston Trevor's spy novel, brought to the screen with a remarkable script by playwright Harold Pinter. George Segal plays Quiller, a secret agent sent to investigate the murder of two British spies at the hands of a neo-Nazi organization in West Berlin. "Alec Guinness never misses a trick in his few scenes as the cold, witty fish in charge of Berlin sector investigations. Max von Sydow plays the Nazi chief quietly but with high camp menace" (Variety). Nominated for BAFTA Awards for Best Art Direction, Film Editing, and Screenplay.
