100 GREATEST SPY MOVIES!

100 GREATEST SPY MOVIES!

HERE’S SOMETHING THAT ALMOST SLIPPED UNDER MY C.O.B.R.A.S. RADAR. AMERICAN HISTORY MAGAZINE HAS PUBISHED A SPECIAL ISSUE ON THE 100 GREATEST SPY FILMS. IT’S ON THE NEWSTANDS NOW (I FOUND MY COPY AT THE LOCAL BORDERS).

THE ISSUE IS PACKED WITH PHOTOS, ORIGINAL REVIEWS, AND RANKINGS OF SPY FILMS FROM THE THIRD MAN TO THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND, QUILLER MEM0RANDUM AND BEYOND. INSTEAD OF LISTING ALL THE BOND OR BOURNE FILMS, THEY ARE DISCUSSED AND LISTED AS A FRANCHISE. THIS IS A GREAT WAY OF GETTING IN INFORMATION ON MORE FILMS THAT HAVEN’T BEEN PREVIOUSLY DISCUSSED INDEPTH.

ONE QUOTE FROM THE OPENING ESSAY ON THE DUPLICITY OF SPIES CAUGHT MY EAR, “TO BE A SECRET AGENT IS TO BE KIND OF A PARANOID POET, ABLE TO SIMILTANEOUSLY HOLD TWO OPPOSING TOUGHTS IN MIND – AND USE THAT TO SURVIVE.”

SPY FANS NEED TO GATHER THIS INTELLIGENCE AT THEIR FIRST OPPORTUNITY.
