Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Produced for the syndicated "Operation Prime Time" anthology, The Key to Rebecca is a two-part adaptation of the Ken Follett novel. Cliff Robertson stars as a British major who is determined to capture an elusive German spy during World War II.The spy in question, played by David Soul, has disguised himself as a British subject and is squirreled away somewhere in Cairo. Robertson hopes to draw Soul out with the help of exotic dancer Lina Raymond and the more "wholesome" but no less attractive Season Hubley. Soul responds to this by kidnaping Hubley, hoping to use her as a shield while he makes his escape. Also appearing in this 4-hour escapade is Robert Culp, bizarrely cast as General Rommel. Key to Rebecca was first made available to local TV stations the week of April 27, 1985.
