Chris Lloyd does not get along with his father Walter. Walter is too careful, cautious, and boring to Chris, and never tries anything new, and Chris had to live by the same standards when he was growing up.

*1/2. 4 years after his last masterpiece 'Four Friends', Arthur Penn shot this spy thriller, mainly in Europe. So we visit Paris, Hamburg, Frankfurt, West/East Berlin and see a lot of Mercedes and BMW. Gayle Hunnicutt, Ilona Grübel and Viktoriya Fyodorova are very pretty. Hackman likes to fish and Dillon likes to race. Yes, yes, yes. I liked the German nurse (not pretty but she dies beautifully). Already forgotten.
