Leon Uris's spy novel, Topaz, was on the national bestseller list for an incredible 50 straight weeks. And in 1969, Alfred Hitchcock brought this intricate thriller to the screen. John Forsythe stars as an American CIA agent who learns of Cuban missiles and a NATO spy by the code name of TOPAZ from a defecting Russian.

He enlists the aid of a French agent named Devereaux (Frederick Stafford), who helps him uncover the espionage, but leaves in his wake a trail of shaken governments, murder, betrayal and suicide. In the words of Hitchcock, 'It lies between Suspicion and North by Northwest. It has the same elements, the same widespread action. What makes it all more delicious is that it actually happened, and despite French disapproval, the only thing we had to change was a reference to De Gaulle.'

First film by The Master I've only given 1 star

Far too long with endless dialogue. Makes 'Vertigo' and 'Rear Window' look fast paced. Very little to recommend it. What was Alfred thinking of?
