British Agent DVD
Lavishly mounted, espionage-tinged tale set in the waning days of Czarist Russia, where British envoy Leslie Howard finds himself bound to block a potential armistice between the Bolsheviks and the Kaiser. His duties become that much more dicey when he rescues beauteous Russian Kay Francis from mob violence, falls for her─and discovers she's Lenin's secretary. With William Gargan, Irving Pichel, and J. Carrol Naish as Trotsky. 80 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
