Master Spy

Montgomery Tully (1964)

PG Certificate


Our Score
There isn't an atom of suspense in this tepid thriller about spying scientists. Indeed, the most exciting moments are the games of chess during which defector Stephen Murray passes vital secrets to Communist squire Alan Wheatley. There's a valiant attempt to put a sting in the tail, but only lab assistant June Thorburn fails to see through the slenderest web of deception. This was clearly a shoestring affair, but director Montgomery Tully hardly strained to make the best of a bad job.


A Western agent stages a daring escape from a communist prison. Soon in the hands of the British, he finds himself under suspicion of being a spy for the Russians. Cold War drama, starring Stephen Murray, June Thorburn, Alan Wheatley and John Carson.
