Elevator Pitch A lawyer is hired to defend a captured Russian spy and goes on to negotiate his exchange for the U2 pilot Gary Powers.
Content Some people trying to cross from East to West Germany are seen to be shot, otherwise total family viewing.
A View It is not waste of time to watch this film, some drama some tension and importantly some humour. And the shooting down of the plane is incredible.

Additional Info: This is the first film that I had seen and then reviewed, although there are some that I sort of reviewed from memory, but soon gave that up since my recollections were seldom complete.
