    1h 51min
    1959     Dramatic thriller     United Kingdom

    Inspired by Cold War paranoia, Graham Greene penned this cynical comedy about vacuum cleaner salesman Jim Wormold (Alec Guinness), whose territory happens to be pre-revolutionary Cuba. Approached by an undercover intelligence agent (Noel Coward) to provide espionage services to the British government, the strapped-for-money Jim accepts, but proves inept at recruiting contacts. On the advice of a friend (Burl Ives), he comes up with a list of made-up characters - and before he knows it, pleased UK bosses send him a secretary (Maureen O'Hara), and rival Soviet agents begin trying to eliminate him. A great, knowing satire about the unreliability of intelligence-gathering, something more prescient today than ever. With the brilliant Ernie Kovacs as the smoothly sinister captain of police.
