George Segal stars in this intelligent spy thriller adapted by Harold Pinter from Adam Hall's best-selling novel, and directed by Michael Anderson.
The British secret service have lifted the lid on a neo-Nazi plot brewing in Berlin, but after two of his agents have been killed, spymaster Pol (Alec Guinness) drafts in American operative Quiller (Segal) to help. His job: to locate the headquarters of the fascist faction and expose ringleader Oktober (Max von Sydow).
All alone, Quiller edges towards the heart of the neo-Nazi network, and the deeper he goes, the clearer it becomes that Oktober is in charge of far more than a crackpot conspiracy.
(1966) Cert: PG
