There have always been spies – men and women who have pried for patriotism, for religion, for love… or for money. This tense drama is based on the true story of the Portland spy ring – an unlikely Soviet operation that took place in southern England and which was active during the late 1950s/early ’60s. Directed by Robert Tronson and starring Bernard Lee, William Sylvester, Margaret Tyzack and David Kossoff, Ring of Spies is presented here as a brand-new High Definition transfer from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.
An antiquarian bookseller and his wife; a disgruntled, hard-drinking naval clerk and the lonely secretary he recruits; a polished Soviet agent who assumes the identity of a dead Canadian citizen… the players in a familiar Cold War duel between Soviet intelligence and British counter-espionage – and a trade in deadly secrets directed from a bungalow in suburban Ruislip, hidden for years from unsuspecting neighbours and British spycatchers.
