Item Details

The acclaimed, best-selling novel by John le Carre, about a Cold War spy on one final dangerous mission in East Germany, is transmuted by director Martin Ritt into a film every bit as precise and ruthless as the book. Richard Burton plays Alec Leamas, whose relationship with a beautiful librarian, puts his assignment in jeopardy.
