Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Delphi Bureau was the pilot film for a short-lived TV espionage series. Lawrence Luckinbill plays an operative for a secret agency that answers only to the US President. His current mission is to locate an entire fleet of obsolete Air Force planes that have vanished without a trace. Very ordinary cold-war fare, The Delphi Bureau contains one or two neat touches, notably the cryptic poems that appear on-screen just before the commercial breaks. Celeste Holm, playing the Washington social leader who acts as Luckinbill's contact, was replaced by Anne Jeffreys when this TV movie graduated to a weekly series.
