Synopsis

Hitchcock adapted this political thriller from Leon Uris's dense, complex spy novel. A Soviet scientist's defection sparks an international furor that extends way beyond the act itself: it seems there's a traitor in the entourage of French President De Gaulle, strange doings taking place in Cuba, and a mysterious, nefarious band of spies known as the Topaz Group readying itself for a big event...

Description

The story of an American C.I.A. agent who learns of Cuban missiles, and a N.A.T.O. spy who leaks secrets to the Soviet Union. based on Leon Uris' same-titled spy novel which was on the National Best-Seller list for fifty consecutive weeks.

Notes

Film was originally rated M by the MPAA, but was re-rated PG when the M rating was discontinued. Additional cast member: Per-Axel Arosenius (Boris Kusenov). There were three alternate endings shot for the film that were used at various times of its release. After the financially weak films "The Birds" and "Marnie", Hitchcock was persuaded by Universal to make both "Torn Curtain" and this Anti-Communist script. MCA/Universal issued the video in a new package look on May 23, 1995.
