A warmed-over relic of the Cold War, Capture That Capsule was produced, co-written and directed by Will Zens. Orson Welles he wasn't. Cult favorite Dick Miller (here billed rather formally as "Richard") plays a quick-witted American secret agent. Miller is sent to retrieve a valuable data capsule from behind the Iron Curtain. His job is made easier by the fact that (at least according to this film) the communist hierarchy is comprised of the lame, the halt and the blind. Capture That Capsule was one of those films seemingly pre-destined to be shown on TV during baseball rain delays.
