John Le Carre's acclaimed bestselling novel, about a Cold War spy on one final, dangerous mission, is every bit as precise and ruthless onscreen in this adaptation directed by Martin Ritt. Richard Burton delivers one of his career-defining performances as Alec Leamas, whose hesitant but deeply felt relationship with a beautiful librarian (Claire Bloom) puts what he hopes will be his last assignment, in East Germany, in jeopardy. An intelligent, hard-edged, and even tragic thriller, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold is etched with realism and suffused with genuine political and personal anxiety.

    Comments about this product:

    This captured the true essence of cold war intrigue. Listen to the dialogue carefully.
    Another missed Oscar for Mr. Burton.
