Eye of the Needle

A Ken ‘no, you’re meant to hold the cork with a tea towel and twist the bottle… oh, give it here’ Follett WWII potboiler, limply directed by Richard ‘Return of the Jedi’ Marquand, starring Donald Sutherland as a German spy about to give the game away about England’s Normandy decoy army. Sam ‘Orlando’ Kydd, Rik ‘Grim Tales’ Mayall and Bill ‘Giddy Game Show’ Fraser support. It’s a cert that it features Sutherland in a trench coat a lot of the time, and woolly polo necks are involved, too but then we could say that about most Sutherland films.
