The Deadly Affair (Blu-ray) Indicator

$39.95

Based on John le Carré’s first novel, Call for the Dead (which introduced spymaster George Smiley), The Deadly Affair sees an ageing British secret agent (James Mason) set out to uncover the truth behind a government employee’s apparent suicide. Eschewing the glamour of the era’s Bond thrillers, Lumet’s chilling and intelligent take on the spy drama presents a palpable and darkly sinister picture of Cold War intrigue. The exemplary cast also includes Maximilian Schell, Harriet Andersson, Harry Andrews, Roy Kinnear and Lynn Redgrave.
