The Spy Who Came In From The Cold (1965) - Richard Burton DVD
The Spy Who Came In From The Cold (1965)
Forget James Bond...and step into the real, dour and chilling world of spies and counterspies. Oscar nominee Richard Burton is the burnt-out British agent who refuses to "come in from the cold" to take a desk job-but instead launches into the most dangerous assignment of his career, stalking East German agent (and Golden Globe winner) Oskar Werner. John Le Carre's best-selling novel provides the basis for this breathtaking thriller of espionage, intrigue, crosses, and double crosses. First-rate performances from the entire cast are matched by a tension-packed and brilliantly plotted screenplay, with masterful direction from Martin Ritt (Hud, Sounder).
