(1973) dir John Huston w/Paul Newman, Dominique Sanda, Harry Andrews, Ian Bannen, James Mason [98 min]
Paul Newman stars as Josephe Reardon, a British secret agent who is part of an elaborate sting operation to flush out a KGB spy ring. He allows himself to be arrested for a diamond robbery and, while in prison, makes arrangements to escape with a fellow inmate and KGB agent. Meanwhile, his boss Mackintosh (Andrews) is following up on his own suspicions and meets with a member of Parliament (Mason) who may be involved. Mackintosh ends up dead, Reardon ends up on the run, and the sting operation turns into a desperate race against time to stop the KGB agent from escaping back to Russia.
