Overview

Filmed on locations ranging from Denmark to the Universal backlot, Alfred Hitchcock's Topaz is based on a novel by Leon Uris. Frederick Stafford, a veteran of European-filmed James Bond rip-offs of the 1960s, is cast as Andre Devereaux, a French secret agent assigned to snoop around Cuba in the months prior to the 1962 missile crisis. Someone is supplying Castro -- and, by extension, Moscow -- with NATO secrets; it is up to Devereaux to liquidate the "mole." Aiding Devereaux is CIA agent Nordstrom John Forsythe and aristocratic anti-Castro Cuban Juanita Karin Dor, who happens to be the girlfriend of pro-Castroite Rico Parra John Vernon. The director seems to be in awe of the fact-based storyline, and as a result, the film is more cut-and-dried than most Hitchcock efforts. Three different endings were filmed for Topaz; the Laserdisc version carries all three, as does the print available to the American Movie Classics cable service. According to the MPAA, the film was originally rated M but later changed to PG; however, a number of home-video issues of Topaz officially list it as "Not Rated."

    Alfred Hitchcock at his finest

    This was a great film. It was showed as a double feature at Northwest Film Forum. It is the quintessential spy thriller and the double feature of Goldfinger illustrates most vividly how this film was an original of the genere. The film also illlustrates the love of a man and a woman beyond the immature flights of fancy which we all go through and I thought that, along with the superb cinematography, was the most inspirational portion of the film. All of the James Bond elements of coture are present without any unbelievable gadgetry or special effects to ruin the authenticity.
