Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

German (Germany) English

In the bleak days of the Cold War, espionage veteran George Smiley (Alec Guinness) is forced out of semi-retirement to uncover a Soviet Agent within MI6's echelons. Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man, beggar-man, thief. George Smiley, the aging master spy of the Cold War and once heir apparent to Control, is brought back out of retirement to flush out a top level mole within the Circus. Smiley must travel back through his life and murky workings of the Circus to unravel the net spun by his nemesis Karla 'The Sandman' of the KGB and reveal the identity of the mole before he disappears. In this 80s agent series British and Soviet special agents fight each other: with Alec Guiness, Curd Jürgens and Mario Adorf.
