PG
Telefon is a 1977 spy thriller directed by Don Siegel. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union planted sleeper spies in the United States. The spies were so brainwashed they were unaware of their true identities. Only a special line from a poem followed by their real names could activate their memories and return them to their mission. The names of these special agents are kept in a book called the Telefon. 20 years after the start of the Cold War and the making of the Telefon, the spies all live peaceful lives with US identities. Nikolai Dalchimsky (Donald Pleasence) steals the book and defects to the United States. Special intelligence agents in the U.S. become baffled when seemingly innocent civilians begin to blow up top-secret government locations. The Soviet Union soon realizes what is happening. They enlist the help of Major Grigori Bortsov (Charles Bronson) who has memorized the only remaining copy of the Telefon. Bortsov must track down Dalchimsky before the U.S. intelligence agency discovers out that secret Russian spies are responsible for the attacks which could ultimately threaten fragile U.S. and Soviet relations.moreless
