John Le Carre's THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD was the first to introduce the genre of the 'Spy Thrillers' that captured the espionage double-dealing twists of the Cold War as the NATO Allies faced off against the Warsaw Pact. The movie is true to the book. Done in black and white, the dark, moody tone of the filming successfully relies on the powerful acting abilities of Richard Burton and Oskar Werner. Great flick. If you're a buff of Cold War spy thrillers, this is where you begin. Don't miss it!
