The Quiller Memorandum

Overview

This spy saga differs from the usual Bond-styled fare that was popular at the time. There are plenty of gadgets but the hero Quiller George Segal never once uses a gun. Quiller is called on by his superior Pol Alec Guinness to infiltrate a Neo-Nazi gang in Berlin after two British agents have been killed on the same mission. After a teacher at a school has hanged himself when he is accused of being a war criminal, Quiller meets the late teachers replacement, the lovely Inge Senta Berger. He willingly goes home ...

Overview

This spy saga differs from the usual Bond-styled fare that was popular at the time. There are plenty of gadgets but the hero Quiller George Segal never once uses a gun. Quiller is called on by his superior Pol Alec Guinness to infiltrate a Neo-Nazi gang in Berlin after two British agents have been killed on the same mission. After a teacher at a school has hanged himself when he is accused of being a war criminal, Quiller meets the late teachers replacement, the lovely Inge Senta Berger. He willingly goes home with her before being beaten, drugged, and kidnapped by Nazi thugs, but the head Nazi Oktober Max Von Sydow allows Quiller to escape in hopes he will lead them to Pol. Quiller is captured again and given until morning to reveal information or he and Inge will die. George Sanders and Edith Schneider make the most of their limited screen time with fine performances.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
The Quiller Memorandum's strengths and charms are perhaps a bit too subtle for a spy thriller, but those who like their espionage movies served up with a sheen of intelligence rather than gloss or mockery will embrace Quiller. Still, there's no denying that that intelligence doesn't go as deep as it thinks it does, which can be frustrating. Harold Pinter's fairly literate screenplay features several moments that seem to explore the tenuousness of human relationships and the human condition, but it's too bound up in the conventions of its genre to make the most of these moments. Even so, that's enough to make Quiller stand out from so many others of its ilk. Unfortunately, Quiller has a tendency to drag (although its final half hour is quite taut and suspenseful), and many of the plot points don't quite add up the way they're supposed to. On the positive side, there are fine performances from George Segal, Max von Sydow, and Alec Guinness, and a haunting and atmospheric John Barry score that is quite memorable. Those in the mood for a James Bond-ish adventure should look elsewhere, but those searching for a serious-minded, if flawed, spy film should be adequately rewarded.
