    Comments about Scorpio Letters, The (MOD):

    ONE OF THE FIRST TELEFEATURES FOR THE U.S. MARKET, BUT RELEASED THEATRICALLY OVERSEAS(THE WB-ARCHIVE DVD CONTAINS A TRAILER), THE SCORPIO LETTERS, BASED ON A NOVEL BY VICTOR CANNING, FOLLOWS AMERICAN AGENT IN LONDON ALEX CORD AS HE DISCOVERS THE 'SUICIDE' OF A BRITISH AGENT. CORD ENCOUNTERS 'RIVAL' BRITISH OPERATIVE SHIRLEY EATON- AND THE TWO FORM AN UNEASY ALLIANCE. SUPERBLY OBSERVED WITH LONDON, PARIS AND OTHER FRENCH LOCALES, CORD AND EATON BLEND INTO THE INFAMOUS BIANERI, A FORMER FRENCH RESISTANCE GROUP AND THE TREACHEROUS OSCAR BEREGI AND HIS INSIDIOUS ALLIES. CORD MAKES A SUITABLE IMPRESSION AS THE SPY CHARACTER, AND EATON PROJECTS WARMTH, MATURITY AND THE PROPER MYSTIQUE OF INTRIGUE FOR HER CHARACTER. THE FILM, DIRECTED EXPERTLY BY RICHARD THORPE (THE VENETIAN AFFAIR), THE SUPPORTING CAST OF LAURENCE NAISMITH, BEREGI, VINCENT BECK, ANTOINETTE BOWER, DANIELLE DEMETZ, LESTER MATTHEWS, ARTHUR MALET, BARRY FORD, EMILE GENEST AND LAURIE MAIN, AMONG OTHERS, IS IMPRESSIVE. THE WB-MGM TRANSFER IN ITS 1.85:1 ASPECT RATIO IS SUPERB AND A SOLID ADDITION FOR ANY SPY FILM COLLECTION.
