Will Kuluva, as the Russian spymaster, radiates the impersonal menace of a prescription for arsenic, while as Gouzenko, Townes suggests very gracefully a sort of soulful bureaucrat. Unluckily, there is an epilogue in which Gouzenko himself appears, wearing a black cloth mask that makes him look like an executioner. In deed, if the picture survives, it is not because he fails to lower the ax.
