Quiller (George Segal - The Bridge at Remagen, Just Shoot Me), an unorthodox secret agent, is assigned by the head of Berlin Control (Alec Guinness - Great Expectations, The Ladykillers) to uncover the operations of a neo-Nazi organisation. During his enquires he meets the beautiful Inge (Senta Berger - Cross of Iron, Cast a Giant Shadow), but is she as innocent as she first appears? Sentenced to death by the menacing 'Oktober' Reichsfuhrer of the new Nazis, Quiller finds himself on the run and trapped in a web of intrigue, lies and deceit...
Filmed on location in West Berlin by Michael Anderson (Around the World in Eighty Days, Logan's Run), this multiple BAFTA-nominated film (with a script by the legendary Harold Pinter - The Birthday Party, The French Lieutenant's Woman) has long been regarded as one of the greatest spy films ever committed to celluloid. George Segal gives an arguably career-best performance as Quiller and is ably supported by Alec Guinness, Max von Sydow and the gorgeous Senta Berger.

This was the first time I'd watched The Quiller Memorandum since its release. Made in 1966, this is a classic spy story of the walled-in West Berlin Cold War era with a theme of a residual dissident Third Reich enclave. That seems a bit bizarre now, that there were real Nazis around in '66, not Neo Nazis. Location and studio shooting give an authentic view of the city, fashions and automobiles...some very classy Porches and DHC Mercedes. Also watch-out for the 30's Neo-Classical granite indoor swimming pool. UK intelligence (Control) Alec Guinness gives good if occasionally slightly camp rendition from a 21st Century perspective. George Segal..(I had a suit like that) is also believable is his quest to sniff out the Nazi gang...In my opinion some scenes lacked a bit from the direction point of view...but very good is the car chase and the interrogation of our hero while under truth drugs...needles bit quite scary! Actually a bit of a tricky story-line, so good to have on DVD for a second watch. Unforgettable background music..Classic Matt Munroe.."Wednesday's Child" ....Definately 4 stars...Rich.
