Soviet Spies, Kirk Douglas and the Freckle-Faced Red-Head

Ahhhh, I miss the old cold war spy vs. spy days . . . . When we had definite good guys and bad guys the world was so much simpler. It was very common during the East vs. West Cold War to have well-publicized spy exchanges - Britain or the U.S. would capture a Soviet spy and exchange him for a British or American spy that the Soviets had caught. This comedy spy adventure involves this concept - catch a spy to exchange for one of your spies caught by the enemy. The British have captured a Soviet spy, and the Soviets want him back, so they hatch a plan to capture a British spy and exchange him for their Soviet spy. Unfortunately the Soviets don't have a British spy for an exchange, so they pay a British import-export man to let them 'capture' him and then exchange him for their spy. To pull off the scheme they have the British fellow court and marry a freckle-faced redhead who is a French citizen and also a British citizen, and is the niece of Sir Trevor Dawson, played by Trevor Howard - the British will surely give them their Soviet spy back in return for this girl's new husband . . . ahhh, but the best laid plans . . . the exchange is arranged and as the Soviet spy is walking across the frozen lake towards the Soviet shore the girl's new husband is walking across towards the Brits . . . but the ice is soft, and the Soviet spy is large, and he falls through the ice and drowns . . . and now the Soviets take back their 'bait' and the girl is without her new husband again . . . What to do, What to do . . . . The spunky freckle-faced redhead decides that to get her new husband back she must capture a Soviet spy so that a new exchange can be made. Enter Kirk Douglas, as Romanian Andrej . . . you see, in the beginning, when the newlyweds were in their Bulgarian honeymoon hotel Kirk Douglas sneaks into their room and hides a micro-film in their suitcase, hoping that they will get it out of Bulgaria for him when they return to England. When our pretty redhead Fabienne, played by Marlène Jobert, discovers that Kirk Douglas is following her she decides that he must be a Soviet spy and she must capture him. What follows is a hilarious comedy of errors as British and Soviet spies chase both Kirk Douglas and Marlène Jobert and each of them thinks that the other must be an enemy spy. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
