Trivia

Klaus Fuchs claims, in this episode, that his wife had committed suicide before the start of the war as a political protest against the Nazis. In point of fact, Fuchs did not marry until 1959. His mother committed suicide, but in 1930, before the Nazis came to power. See more »

Goofs

General Walter Bedell Smith is harassing James Jesus Angleton at CIA headquarters about information that Angleton has about the Cambridge Spies. The aggressive and impatient Smith blurts out, "Come on Angleton! Where's the beef!" This phrase actually originated in a television commercial for Wendy's chain of hamburger restaurants in 1984, more than 30 years after the year in which the scene is set. See more »

Quotes

Colonel Winter: Can't fathom a man giving it up for art.
Anthony Blunt: Never trust a man who looks down his nose at art. Although looking down your nose, I suppose you'd ravage your mustache, past which you can't see much at all.
Colonel Winter: Are you trying to be funny or are you insulting me?
Anthony Blunt: I'm insulting you. I had finished what I wanted to do in hush-hush. That's why I packed it in.
Colonel Winter: What do you mean? Finished what?
Colonel Winter: Passing the name of every single MI5 agent on to the Russians. Good to see you, Winter.
