Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Originally The Assassination Game, the title of this spy flick was changed at the last minute in the interests of topicality. Robert Rusler heads the cast as a wet-behind-the-ears CIA agent. When a major international crisis looms, Russier is forced to align himself with world-weary KGB agent Theodore Bikel. The two natural enemies struggle manfully to prevent a political assassination that might heat up the Cold War all over again. A dash of last-reel action is thrown in to wake up the audience.
