Vintage Trailer of the Week 34

"What do they want of Quiller? What does Quiller want of them?"
Adapted from Adam Hall's novel by Harold Pinter, and directed by a young Michael Anderson before hackdom truly claimed him, this is probably the most cerebral and atmospheric of all 60s Spy Movies. Alec Guinness and Max Von Sydow offer predictably classy support, but George Segal owns the film as the clever, poker-faced Quiller, and theres the requisite John Barry score and some fascinating location photography of Berlin. Its a shame its lack of success meant it never became a franchise.
Great trailer, too:
