FIVE FINGERS (INSTANT VIDEO) W/JAMES MASON - SIMPLY AN OUTSTANDING SPY FILM Oct. 29 2013
By Love Our Military Men - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I am a big James Mason fan and am so glad to see this vintage film available on the instant video format. James Mason, with his aristocratic demeanor is simply outstanding in this docudrama titled "FIVE FINGERS". Set during World War II - this 1952 film is the true story of an Albanian born man who was valet to a British ambassador in Turkey. With no interest in political affairs and desiring to improve his economic station in life, he embarks on his infamous and distinguished career of espionage - in which he sells 35 documents (to the Germans) which included the plans for D-Day. Receiving large sums of cash for his 'services', he solicits a destitute countess to hold his money for safe keeping, paying her a fee until he can save enough to go and live comfortably in Rio De Janeiro. He even invites her to go with him.

The film from start to finish reflects sophistication in front of as well as behind the cameras (with all external scenes filmed in the locales associated with the story).

There are some twists and turns throughout the film that continue to keep your interest with lots of intrique. As "Ulysses Diallo" (codenamed "Cicero" by the Germans) continues with confidence on his treacherous path of espionage, several things occur - 'little' obscure events that begin his downfall - things that in and of themselves have no meaning, one of which, is that of a housekeeper who can't seem to get her vacuum to start! What happens to this man at the end of it all is so ironic that it absolutely made for a perfect ending!

(Item of interest: This was reportedly one of Mason's favorite films.)

A highly recommended spy film - especially for James Mason fans.

Suspenseful and believable March 27 2014

Really well done. Intelligently presented and quite suspenseful. James Mason was one of the greats and had an unforgettable voice. Not at all like a James Bond story, this one is very real.

Excellent WW2 Spy Thriller March 16 2014
By Jim Tarleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Terrific spy movie with superb performances and outstanding crackling dialogue. Some of the scenes look a bit cloudy as Fox Cinema Archives tries once again, but overall it's not a bad print. The trouble with Fox Cinema Archives is that this is the only way to obtain some of the 20th Century Fox films that are worth having in your collection, so either take their prints or do without.

As good as ever April 3 2014

I saw this movie way back when. It has stood time well. James Mason is marvelous and the issues that arise are present still in the 21st century. In other words, I find it engrossing.

A Small Masterpiece May 16 2014
By C. C. Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"5 Fingers" should be better known than it is. Its golden touch was applied by Joseph Mankiewicz, who knew how to write literate, witty scripts, produce movies, assemble the right kind of talent (such as Bernard Herrmann for music), and direct the right actors for their parts: here, James Mason, Danielle Darrieux, and Michael Rennie in the leads. Even the supporting cast, essential for this movie, are perfect. The story is based on the nearly incredible fact that the Nazi high command outfoxed itself by refusing to act on vital, leaked Allied battle plans because it believed they were bogus. To that twist, Mankiewicz adds a few more of his own creation. This is not a great film, but it's a very good one: the sort that studios like 20th Century Fox once turned out as part of its annual product, which today leaves almost everything at your local cinema in the shade.
