Already eclipsed by James Bond and sexier European films, Paul Newman does his best to energize this derivative but lively spy-chase thriller set during Nobel season, in a Stockholm populated by the glamorous Elke Sommer, Diane Baker, Micheline Presle and Jacqueline Beer. Toss several Hitchcock pictures into a blender, and what comes out is reasonably engaging… and more than a little dated. With an enormous cast — Sergio Fantoni, Kevin McCarthy, Leo G. Carroll, Sacha Pitoëff, Virginia Christine, etc.. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
