The Quiller Memorandum (1966)

Twentieth Century-Fox Film
Directed by Michael Anderson
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Fox)

George Segal is sent by British intelligence to investigate the murder of two previous agents in Berlin. He is soon on the track of a neo Nazi cell lead by Max von Sydow. He is drugged, kidnapped and questioned, but ultimately let go. He gets help from pretty school teacher Senta Berger, who may or may not be a neo Nazi herself. Mostly talk, with little action, from screenwriter Harold Pinter, who is too clever for his own good. Segal is badly miscast.
