  • "All lies are the truth, and the truth is the loveliest of lies." Does the catchphrase of the Great Anatole hold the key to a mystery?

    9.5
    A scientist, during the darkest days of the Cold War, elects to disappear rather than use his genius for the creation of world-threatening destruction. Is the Great Anatole, a small-time illusionist who prefers his audiences to be children, the missing man - or does he at least know what happened to him? An American spy has to find out where the truth lies, but finds he has to confront his own humanity in so doing. The drama ends sentimentally by suggesting that the CIA man does have a conscience and can respect a decision to drop out of the nuclear arms race - unlikely in reality, but one rather hopes such things could happen, at least occasionally. Curt Jurgens is a commanding presence as the mysterious magician.moreless
