Scott Marks 12:30 p.m., July 26
Alfred Hitchcock's demystification of espionage agents, who herein bear a strong likeness to corporate execs (well-tailored suits, lots of conferences, phone calls, plane trips, and business lunches or teas). Except when it tries to be romantic or suspenseful, it's a very sedate, straightforward treatment of a very sinister, serpentine plot. With Frederick Stafford, John Forsythe, Philippe Noiret, and Michael Piccoli. 1969.
