Synopsis:
A suspenseful, true-life spy thriller based on the memoirs of L. C. Moyzisch, 5 Fingers features an enigmatic performance from James Mason as a charming, amoral enemy spy posing as the valet to a British ambassador during World War II. Working for the highest bidder with no personal political bent, Cicero secures British war files detailing the planned D-Day attacks and passes on the documents to the Nazi's who regard the information as too far-fetched to be treated seriously. Intelligently scripted by Michael Wilson just before he fell victim to the McCarthy-era blacklists and directed by Joseph L.
Mankiewicz, and witty 5 Fingers audaciously popularised the notion of the anti-hero protagonist and intelligently emphasised a cynical view of government hypocrisy. A film that's some way ahead of its time, it also features a stirring score by music maestro Bernard Herrmann.
