      Otis Ferguson The New Republic Whatever indictment it carries is very soft and there is much nonsense about going down for one's flag and all that. But for anybody with a grain of imagination there is also the suggestion of a great brave shaking of the world underlying the whole. Jan 24, 2024 Full Review Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine British Agent is so agreeable and exciting to watch that the historical inventions won't worry you. Aug 1, 2019 Full Review Helen Brown Norden Vanity Fair Kay Francis as a Soviet patriot and Leslie Howard as a British diplomat, in an unconvincing picturization of R. H. Bruce Lockhart's best-seller. Jun 7, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Sluggish political drama. Rated: C+ Aug 12, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

      Steve D A bit too talkie but entertaining. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/08/23 Full Review Audience Member You made me swallow the last piece of gum in Russia. During World War 1 a British agent has been sent to Russia to observe the relationship between the Germans and Russians. As the Russians become independent the country could go in a lot of directions. A rival female is also in Russia and the two spies fall in love. They are pitted against each other and will need to decide if they pit their loyalty against their feelings. ?While you sit there talking about your ideas I fight for mine.? Michael Curtiz, director of Casablanca, White Christmas, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Mildred Pierce, The Vagabond King, Kid Galahad, and Captain Blood, delivers British Agent. The storyline for this picture is fairly interesting and unpredictable with wonderful characters. This picture is slow at times but I adored the acting and felt the script was well written. The cast includes Leslie Howard, Kay Francis, and Cesar Romero. ?Ain?t much fun to watch a game and not take part in it.? I DVR?d this film because it was directed by one of my favorite directors, Michael Curtiz. The film is fairly entertaining but far from his best work. I felt Kay Francis was excellent and delivered her role perfectly. The film is worth watching once as the love story is well done and the conclusion comes together perfectly. This is definitely worth watching once but not worth adding to your DVD collection. ?I?ve done all the supporting I want to do.? Grade: C+/B- (6.5) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member good spy drama from director curtiz Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
