George Segal, Alec Guinness and Max von Sydow square off against each other in this espionage thriller, adapted by Harold Pinter, from the novel by Adam Hall. Ace spy Quiller is lured away from holiday to replace a British agent who died while essaying a most challenging assignment: infiltrating the Neo-Nazi ranks. Now Quiller must find the group's station in Germany. Along the way, however, he is abducted, tortured, reprogrammed, doped and almost blown up. The resilient spy, though, will show the evil Neo-Nazi leader Oktober that he has more lives than a cat and more tricks up his sleeve than anyone this side of James Bond.

Not as exciting as the review makes it sound
Interesting and entertaining with moments of drama but much more could have been made of it. If you want a thriller there are far better ones for less than £11. Nice music by John Barry helps it along.
