The thinking man's James Bond, starring George Segal as Quiller, a British spy sent into post-war Germany to uncover a secret Nazi organisation.
The plot is rather thin, but the charismatic performance of the lead star make it an enjoyable watch. The look of the film is typically 60's, therefore it doesn't quite have the staying power of the 007 films.
6/10
